Episode 83 LIVE: A bit of a deviation …

thumb

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Live Stream this week! It was a lot of fun and there was a lot of snow talk – never a dull moment, let me tell you! Welcome to new and returning viewers – I really appreciate you taking the time out of your day and tuning in. This week, I answer a very long question about combing versus carding equipment and what one could think about when starting to add tools to one’s fibre preparation kit. I include a review of Plum Deluxe Tea from Oregon and there is a coupon code [welfordpurls15] for everyone to enjoy 15% off your order. I have several spins that I am still plugging away on but since I haven’t been well, I have made zero progress on them! Instead, I have been knitting up a storm on my Stone Point poncho, which is finished. I’ve also finished, but need to reknit, my Veronika cardi by Shannon Cook and I added a much-needed pom pom to Norah’s Shanti Toque!

Link to the Etsy shop that had Norah’s pom pom is here: KitchenKlutter

Projects I talked about today:

1. Shanti Hat (crochet) by Robyn Devine project page

2. SweetGeorgia Yarns’ SW BFL Amethyst spin

3. Kinfolk Yarn and Fibre’s Etsy shop is here

4. Disdero Ranch Romney & Mohair pin-drafted roving spin – cream
