Episode 100: Gather Here


cover100In this episode, I reflect on my year as a participant in Sheep to Shawl at Fiber Craft Studio and share my final project for the course. For additional information about the course and photos of the class sessions, take a look at sheep2shawl on my Ravelry project page. I will also announce the winner of the #powerpantry prize for November. The remainder of this episode will be devoted to a retrospective of my previous segments about the course.  I hope you enjoy listening. Each session at the studio opens and closes with a verse from the Tewa tradition.

Thank you for your support of the podcast and your encouragement over the course of more than two years and 100 episodes.  My shawl patterns are discounted to $3 until I record Episode 101. Check out my design page on Ravelry for more information.  You don’t need to enter a code — just put the pattern in your cart and the discount will appear.

Oh our Mother the Earth,
oh our Father the Sky,
Your children are we, and with tired backs
We bring you the gifts that you love.
Then weave for us a garment of brightness.
May the warp be the white light of morning; 
May the weft be the red light of evening;                                                                                                    May the fringes be the falling rain;
May the border be the standing rainbow.
Thus weave for us a garment of brightness,
that we may walk fittingly where birds sing;
That we may walk firmly where grass is green.
Oh our Mother the Earth, oh our Father the Sky.
