Episode 28: We're BACK and it's all about Freddie

We really ARE back this time. Poor Natalie has been struggling to get this episode out for the last two weeks! She finally had to move to a different hosting service, so Episode 28 is now on iTunes, but in a slightly different location than the last 27 episodes. I found it by searching for Knitting in the Round; it comes up as knittingintheround, if I remember right. Hope you enjoy it!

III. Round the wheel:
Nothing! For MONTHS!

The wheels have been turning, turning, turning. Just finished eight skeins of the same Corriedale fleece that I used to make my Oatmeal cardigan. Also spun up some silk noil I dyed and plied it with a deep navy merino for a funkier yarn than I usually produce. Some sort of rough local roving I dyed in a peachy color turned into a very nice "Virginia Peach Festival". Right now I have pure angora singles on the Haldane from my white rabbits and some nice Romney from Thistle Cove Farm on the Reeves. Today I'm dyeing some CVM skeins in a color that I'm going to call "Cherry Creek Road".

IV. Favorite things:

Sheep shearing gatherings and skirting fleeces!
