Thank you to those who joined us this week on the live stream – your time means a lot to me and I appreciate spending this time with you all. To those who are returning or new viewers of the show, welcome! This week, we chatted about an extra fine Merino & Bamboo spin that was our feature for Spinning Growth. We discussed tension, managing flyaway fibres and over-plying for certain situations. Next, we chatted about socks at great length. I discussed the fabric that I’ve created recently from opposing 3-ply to smooth 4-ply fabric. We talk about the surface of the fabrics and the differences. Lastly, I share some swatching I’ve been doing and I discuss the finishing touches that I made to my Sparkle Cardigan by Joji Locatelli. I give a brief update on the book Katrina and I are working on – we are hoping to have it released in the Spring. I hope you enjoy the show this week!
