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.

Fibercast 52: Whole Lot a Hollerin’

Hello!  I am outside for this episode.  There are many cameos including grackles, woodpeckers, Mallards, Chickadees and “the dogs”.

I forgot a few regular segments, like introductions and to thank you all for reaching out whether through social media, Ravelry, or email. I appreciate your feedback.  The show notes might be a bit sparse but if you have questions feel free to PM on Ravelry or email. Hope all is well with you.
