Thank you for tuning in this week! We joined together on Saturday morning for a Live Stream with the Patreon subscribers – thank you to everyone who made it! I appreciate your enthusiasm so much. To new and returning viewers, welcome! I saved some housekeeping for the end of the show – stay tuned to the end if you are curious. About halfway through the show, I have a demonstration of hackling the fleece I have been processing this week. Today, we chatted at length about socks, spinning for socks, nylon and made some comparisons between commercial socks, handspun 2-ply and 3-ply socks, and fibre content in our Ask Anything segment. Then, I shared three spins I finished in the last week, and all of the squares that I have knit thus far on my POP! blanket/wall hanging. Enjoy the *cough cough* very long *cough cough* show!
Our Patreon winner this month is Angela Cartwright! Congratulations, Angela! I have your address, so I will pop that in the mail this week.
