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.
I’m back from a weekend in Rhinebeck, NY and eager to share all of the fiber-y goodness of the weekend. Listen in for festival news, the details of my finished RB sweater, plus — how to win some NY Sheep & Wool loot! What have I been doing ALL wrong? Listen to find out. This episode closes with a poem titled “How to Listen” by James Crews.
It’s all about sweater weather and pumpkin in this episode.

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.
