Episode 92: Chaotic Craft


I am just back to work after a long, February break. Yeeesh…re-entry is hard! I cobbled together some footage of a couple skis I took to share with you as well as some stitching. As you can infer from the title, there’s a lot of different crafts and this edition is a bit of a meander through that. I’ve done my best to highlight the major topics in the list below should you be interested in pursuing any products or patterns. Fond wishes to you!

Episode 91: Spinning Dimensions


Well, yes, there is more ice…I so wish I had the footage of the eagles this time as I had a very close encounter but alas my cinematic skills were not up to par. I hope you’ve been enjoying all that your season has to offer. You’ll find in the vlog a mix of knitting, spinning and stitching. I try to talk about the laws of thermodynamics and spinning but don’t worry no alternate dimensions are achieved;) I hope this finds you well and, as always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for tuning in!

Episode 90: Ice & Eagles

Hello & Happy New Year!

I’ve dabbled a bit more in editing and filmography. I am enjoying this piece of the process and I hope my amateur skills add a little extra zing.

In this episode be prepared for LOTS of bird footage. As the title implies, there is a lot of ice and eagles. I enjoyed gathering little vignettes of my time over the holidays. I wonder what the next couple of weeks will bring now that I am back in school. I’ve brought my camera down south to my parents to capture some time with the sheep and maybe even my riding lesson!

I also awkwardly announce a Patreon page. You’ll see the link below the post if this is of interest to you. All the content remains free and charges will be on a per episode basis not to exceed two posts per month. Additional content will be posted here should I choose to add any additional episodes or enrichment. All the same, a heartfelt thank you for all support.

Episode 88: Moose & Bear Talk

Hello Friends,

I’ve added some elements this time round as I get more familiar with editing on iMovie. I am by no means a cinematographer or film specialist, but I had some fun adding music and other segments. The initial part features a hike I take with Ruby regularly and some scenery from around our house in the woods. I share a few funny stories of bear adventures and reminisce a bit about my old dogs, Fern, Coe and Bella. There is, of course, knitting and stitching at the end. I hope this finds you well and in good spirits. Thank you for your support of the vlog and all your comments and insights.

Fondly, Sarah

Episode 86: Lost Words

Hey Friends,

As you can probably tell I am still a little obsessed with The Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris. They recently published The Lost Spells and The Lost Words game. I share my experience with these two new pieces in the podcast. I also have some knitting and an idea for a new make-a-long. You’ll see a separate video highlighting my thoughts about start and end time, which correlate to the solstice and equinox. As always, I hope this finds you well and in good spirits.

Episode 85: Primordial Savoring

Welcome! As the title implies this episode travels outside the bounds of knitting. I share a little insight from the Weavers Oracle as a way to support my lackluster thought process these days. I hope that you are well and in good spirits wherever you are and as always thank you for tuning in.
