In this episode, I’ll share some new knitting, spinning and pottery projects I’ve been up to, I’ll enable you to some tea, and art batts, as well as a new wine and yarn pairing. I’ll share some details about the sheep shearing school I participated in, and more!
In this episode, we do a bit of a reintroduction, since the show has been on for more than a year now! I’ll share some beautiful patterns I’ve been working with as well as some things I’ve been dyeing. We’ll do a little Lush Skein, and talk about what is in my textile reading Stash. I’ll also introduce a new regular segment about sustainability and ethics in the fiber industry.
Each podcast episode, I discuss wine and yarn pairings in a segment called "The Lush Skein". Here, you will find a complete list of all the pairings to date. If you want to know the reasons behind the pairing, however, you'll have to listen to the show to find out! Try them out (21+ of course), and let us know what you think! Feel free to send some suggestions and I'll review them on the show!
