This episode contains an update on my recent knitting AND crochet projects. I’m thrilled to be working on a test crochet of Kore by Maysa Tomikawa. I talk about my visits to The Met and a local exhibition about the story of silk production in the Lehigh Valley. There’s more linocut — this time a Hare Moon. All this, plus advent excitement and a poem by Naomi Shihab Nye.
In this episode, I talk about some stitching projects completed over the winter holidays, plus quilting, mending, visiting a textile exhibit, and a poem by Billy Collins.
I’ve been finishing up knitting projects — mostly small, as well as planning for the year ahead. This week, I share some excerpts about the importance of realism and specificity in poetry. I also share the results of sewing my first-ever zero waste garment — and what I will pay more attention to next time. Finally, I encourage my fellow fiber enthusiasts to consider funding a scouring facility in the Northeast US.
Thanks to my Ko-fi supporters, I’m returning with poems 11-20 of my #100daysproject.
I’m reading a poem every day until March 5th. In this episode, I share a reading of the first ten poems, thanks to the generosity of Ko-fi subscribers and contributors.
Scrappy sewing projects have multiplied and now I’m thinking my way slowly to my first quilting project. I’m starting and re-starting Xmas knitting and immersing myself in 100 days of poetry.
