Episode 79: Storing raw fibre, Amethyst & POP! Blanket seaming

thumb

Thank you for tuning in this week! Thank you to new and returning viewers of the show, and a huge thank you to those who support the show through Patreon – you guys are the ones who keep it on the air month to month! This week, I am constantly interrupted by the kids – thank you for your patience. I answer a question that has been asked several times over the past few months about storing raw fleece and whether to process it all in one go or not. I chat about a couple of spins I have on the wheel – including one that is a pay-it-forward for a wheel I received in Victoria at ANWG. I share some major progress on my POP! Blanket that I set out and organized while we were camping this past week. Lastly, I share some project planning that I have been dreaming about. The show ends with a new segment around health and well-being that I wanted to share with you about my journey towards fitness. Enjoy the show!

I’m still waiting to hear from people who won during Tour de Fleece – please have a listen to see if you won!
