Fleece Wise: Eloise Update

I super late on this post.  I’ve been scattered and attempting to settle. You’ve probably already seen this, but I wanted to contain all the media in one place. I hope you are all well and in good woolly spirits!

Episode 58: Honoring the Endurance

I am not myself these days. I seem to be going every which way both physically and in spirit!  New York, northern Maine, southern Maine, schools, festivals, retreats.  I feel as thought I am leading a double life. Ai! Probably safe to say, this podcast should be approached with that mind. I share my time spent at Rhinebeck, Highlands on the Fly, a few projects (and I mean a few), some acquisitions, a book review of Drop Dead Easy Knits, and some Shackleton Facts. I will be reporting on my Fleece Wise project in a separate vlog so stay tuned. (audio will be available soon)

Right-O I hope you are all well and in good spirits!

Fleece~Wise Part II

The Fibertrek podcast is co-hosting a special series — Fleece-Wise, a deeper exploration of our craft and connection to sheep. This is a four-part series, starting the week of 9/18/16 on the NH Knits Podcast and continuing each week thereafter on the Fibertrek, here on Fibretown and concluding with the Yarns at Yin Hoo podcast just before Rhinebeck.

Here is installment II of the Fleece-Wise Series:

We hope to purchase a fleece together at Rhinebeck, using information we have gleaned along the way. We plan to include our viewers/listeners in that process as well!

From Sarapomegranate of Yarns at Yin Hoo : “If you have felt, as I did, that the fleece tent at a fiber festival is overwhelming and intimidating, if you’ve been considering a fleece purchase, if you have unprocessed fleece languishing in storage, if you’re experienced in fleece processing — you are invited to participate in the discussion threads on Ravelry, ask questions and share ideas. Podcast hosts will be facilitating discussion threads and awarding prizes for engaging in discussion.”

The podcasters involved in Fleece-Wise, nhkclaire, Swenstea, and Sarapomegranate have unique experiences, practical information, suggestions and stories to share, as well as interviews with fleece-producers. We hope that there will be something for everyone in this series!

 

Episode 57: Tears of Shackleton

I am still working audio and itunes but in the meantime you can find the latest podcast on YoutTube. I make no mention of recent conversations on sweaters (no show notes boo & hiss) but I will return to this topic soon. I also have a wool heroes and heroines segment to edit. Right..I hope this finds you all well and in good spirits.

In which I wilt

Whoa! It was crazy steamy here today.  I think this episode may be a bit lack luster due to that humidity and the fact my summer is over. Boo Hoo.  I plan to get my new sewing vlog ASAP so stay tuned if you’re into that thing…

On Walkabout: An Island Shearing Adventure

I’m traveling at the moment without my normal set up.  I have put together this short episode featuring my time on Flat Island shearing for 2016.  These are wild island sheep off the coast of Maine and I was so excited to be included in this adventure.  As always thanks for tuning in. ~Sarah


this will not be included on iTunes as I do not have the ability to compress it to the appropriate size.  It also features just music and a visual so there will be no audio.
