Contributions to Clean Fleece NY will support the initiative of bringing a scouring facility to the Northeast region of the US. You can help this project move from an exiting idea to a reality. My fiber friends have collaborated on a plan to show me support when you make a financial contribution to a cause that is very important to me. Follow the links below to learn more and donate.
I’ve been working on the Bandit designed by Jamie Thomas, using some combo-spin handspun I’ve had in my stash.
Kathleen (craftbuzz) is the winner of this sweet clothespin bag that is inspired by a Taproot pattern. Congratulations. Each quarter, I send a prize to one of the Yarns at Yin Hoo podcast’s Ko-fi contributors. Make a one-time contribution or become a member!
I have selected nine projects from Taproot magazine and I’m planning to make them over the course of 2023. Next up is a recipe perfect for a spring menu — the Mushroom and Leek Tart from Issue 51: IMAGINE.
I keep posting photographs of scones to fill out my cover image, and I forget to talk about them on the episode. I love scones. They can go from savory to sweet, they keep in a tin for several days, and they travel well. I especially enjoy baking scones in this pan from King Arthur. It was a gift from my mother and so I treasure it. Each scone has nice, raised edges! There are some good recipes on the King Arthur Flour website; however, my go-to recipe these days is the Master Scones recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. I love it because it provides weight measurements — very important for flour — especially if you like to mix flours together. For these St. Patrick’s inspired soda bread scones, I added some buckwheat flour, caraway seeds, and golden raisins, then topped with Kerrygold butter and my homemade orange marmalade.

I’m so sorry to hear about your cancer diagnosis. You will beat it again!
It was so nice meeting you at the NJ Sheep and Wool Festival over your Look at My Holes top.
Dear Sara, thank you for that powerful poem, and for so generously sharing your post-apocalyptic skills with us in every podcast. Your handspun garment will be gorgeous!
