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.

Fleece Wise:

he Fibertrek podcast is co-hosting a special series — Fleece-Wise, a deeper exploration of our craft and connection to sheep.

Please post any and all questions (these will by addressed in the series if possible), comments and FOs here. All posts will be eligible for prizes.

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.

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 : “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, 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!

Channeling Our Inner Shackleton

There are a few minor distractions mainly thunder and my Mum walking the dogs but I persevere through the elements! In this fibercast we finally giveaway the Upton Yarn and announce an EPIC craft-along.  There is heritage breed chat and lots of natural colored wool…of course!

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!

Fibercast 46: Birdwoman

Squeak! I did it! There is a lot here so pick and choose as you wish. It includes a discussion of Katya Frankel’s Autumn Essentials Collections, a morale boost giveaway, WIPs, spinning, Shackleton CAL and some bird chat…. I do include a Shackleton history update (ho hum for sum, I am sure but it is near the end 😉  Thank you as always for tuning in!

PS I find the quality much better on a computer or smaller device than my big screen. I am always working to make the picture clearer but I don’t record in HD. Should you have any tips or tricks they would be most welcome.

Pay no mind to the “so” & “anyway” which seem to take center front stage of my speech!  Ger!  There is a little wildlife chatter at the beginning with a visit from my fledgling friend but there is also WIPS, some finished items, Shackleton CAL chat and some textiles in time…Shackleton style.  If you care to stay till the end I share some footage from my recent trip to Flagstaff Lake in Maine of local wildlife and landscape.  Thanks for tuning in!
