Lovely podcast. Lovely yarn. I especially like the Wobble Gobble.
Hi, Joan. The gift book from Marybeth is A Dictionary of Color Combinations. It is a little gem. Hopefully with this information you can search for it online or ask your local book dealer about it!
Excellent episode, as always. Could you tell us the name of the color book you referred to (that Marybeth gifted you at Rhinebeck) which you used as a resource for the color palette for the textile play with your Mom’s wedding dress? What a wonderful idea that is.
If I were to win a skein of sock yarn, I would go for the botanically dyed; always been interested in knitting with that.
I am super excited about this yarn – the botanically dyed yarn sounds so amazing – especially as I have just been barely experimenting with dyes around my garden with my our local spinning group! Remember to be kind to yourself no matter what your poetry practice becomes – we are all a WIP!
These skeins are lovely and the backstory is even better! I love the unexpected (as least for a layperson like me!) colors produced by natural dyeing. Both skeins are lovely, but the blue is WOW! Can’t wait to learn more about the NYS collaboration
I’d love to try the nylon-free sock yarn. Thanks for the opportunity to win some.
I’d love to try the botanically dyed yarn! … Your brownies look amazing, too….
The botanically dyed indigo just BEGS to be knit into your “take back the river “ socks, for which I had the pleasure of test-knitting. I’ve heard much about the strength and endurance of Dorset fleece and the combination of color, pattern and yarn is inspiring, as is your podcast. I never come away without an idea about a craft, or poem or recipe.
What a lovely idea to develop a sock weight yarn not using nylon and to test it out by multiple washings! Love both of the colorways but tending towards the botanically dyed skein. Since I am a sock knitting virgin- I think I’d either try my hand at EZ’s Afterthought Heel pattern in my Knitting without Tears book or Susan B Anderson’s ColorRib Socks. Thanks for a fun podcast!
I am excited about this sock yarn! I have been looking for just this item to meet my 4 pair sock goal for this year (2 pair for me and 2 pair for my husband). I have a long-term goal of only having hand knit socks and I’ve determined 4 pair per year is a realistic goal for me. So, I would love to be entered into the contest, but I am also just going to purchase a skein for my project.
Thank you for another enjoyable episode and all of the great ideas and inspiration you offer! Appreciate you!
I enjoyed listening to this episode and really love your alphabet sampler! The Bear Mountain sock yarn is beautiful. I homeschool my little girls and it would be fun to make socks for them in the Riverside colorway ahead of a unit studying Fresh Water we have coming up this spring.
I just want you to know I have listened to all your podcasts from the beginning. I started listening to podcasts around 2010 and have an extensive group each month. Yours is definitely one of the very best. Your sound quality and content are extremely good and your comments on your projects are well thought out, detailed without repeating yourself. Keep up the good work. I don’t know how you get so much crafting in and yet work full time! Congratulations on an excellent podcast. Sincerely, fiddlingknitter on Ravelry, Pat in real life.
Hi, Nancy. Good eye! The photo of the ornate footwear relates to one of the textile exhibits that participants visiting. Shoes from the Stuart Weitzman Collection was open for its final day on the day of our class! Weitzman’s wife sourced, purchased, and made gifts of interesting and historic shoes over the course of many years. One of my tasks as a facilitator was to link the collections to the work we were doing, and to encourage the participants to think along these lines.
What a jam-packed episode – all of it rewarding. Love the photo of your class at Michener Museum. Everyone looks so engaged and happy at their work! I am too intrigued not to ask: how does the picture of the fancy party shoes on the table relate to the class content?
