Episode 227

It’s hot, humid, and I’m working on house projects at Yin Hoo.  My limbs are tired and I can only muster the energy for easy fiber projects at the moment!


Thank you to everyone who has been using the pattern, posting photos, and telling me about your knitting experience.  Yoga socks make great gifts and are a good idea for a portable knitting project.  Keep posting to the Ravelry thread and using #yogisockskal when you share your projects on IG.  I will be donating one dollar to SoulFire Farm for each post you make — let’s work together to make this a sizeable donation!


I’ve been seeing the progress and even some finished projects — wow!  You knitters are amazing.  Keep using the hashtag to post photos and share with other Yarns at Yin Hoo listeners on our Ravelry thread.  I’m a little stalled out on Yell at the moment, but I will regroup in a few weeks’ time.

Hudson Valley Textile Project

Thread Counts is the newsletter of HVTP and a great way to receive updates about events in the Hudson Valley.  I recommend that you check out the calendar of summer / autumn events and subscribe to the newsletter!

le Tour de Fleece

Oh, my goodness.  I’m having so much fun spinning up this beautiful braid from Inglenook Fibers.  My goal for the tour is 3-ply two ways as laid out in the “sock yarn” issue of Ply magazine by JoAnna Spring of Knit Spin Farm.
