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.
Indigo summer is drawing to a close, and I’ve made time for indigo dyeing and improvising a version of Malaysian blue rice. Plus lots of progress on my Rhinebeck sweater and a poem by Lorna Dee Cervantes.
It’s been an exciting month as a fiber enthusiast, with a teaching engagement, finished projects, plans for 2023 — and a giveaway for YAYH listeners.
A catch-up on finished projects and upcoming makes — including my Rhinebeck sweater. Plus, pollinators, recipes to savor summer, and a poem by Fatimah Asghar.
