    I LOVE that black/sari/bamboo yarn! So pretty! I spun a batt once that had sari threads all in it, but I had a hard time drafting because the sari threads were all knotted and I found it very frutstrating, but yours is so beautiful and even!

    Also, thanks for sharing your harp story. I went to law school and practiced law for three years before getting out this January, and I think it killed me a little bit each day. There’s just something wrong about going to work every day and really hoping that you get fired. I was completely shutting down and I am just. so. glad. I don’t have to do that any more. Right now I’m not working, just getting back to being me and figuring out what that is again. Sometimes I feel like I should be doing more or I shouldn’t have handled things the way I did, but hearing your story reaffirms that I did what I needed to do to survive. And there’s not a thing wrong with that!

    That Craftzine site/Craft magazine is amazingly cool. I thought my bread-bag braided jump ropes were cool…Anyway, thanks for sharing. I had just listened to the Yarnspinner’s Podcast too on Monday this week. How funny! It does have lots of good stuff.

    Yarns are lovely!

    Hi Meghan,

    I “discovered” rodrigo y gabriela last year after hearing them on NPR. So glad they are getting more exposure–they are amazing! However, I really wanted to thank you about talking about emusic. I had never heard of the site. I am really enjoying discovering independent artists, and the site is great. I had to subscribe!!!!

    I enjoy your podcast and hearing about your experiences (tried Jessicurl–I’m a convert!)

    I love your yarn :-)

    Hi Meghan–I recently discovered your podcast and are really enjoying it. Your yarn and garden look terrific, and I love your stories about your little man. :o)

    I found Roderigo Y Gabriella last year when our local radio station (XPN in Phila.) had them in for a live performance and was blown away–just like you were. My kids love them too–my son and his friend like to pretend they are playing along a la Guitar Hero. We are all hoping they come up with a new cd soon.

    I have learned from your podcast-to keep the joy in whatever I am doing. Even cleaning out a spare room-a basement in your case. I have learned to look at my spinning, dyeing, knitting from fresh eyes. Mine get tired after a while. Thank you for this!
    Just two things to help you along with the spinning-start looking around at yard sales or antique dealers. I have an old wash tub-thankfully on legs-that has a hand-cranked wringer on it. I find it so easy to feed my fleece, roving, or yarn into the wringer to get rid of the extra water. It is not a 100% improvement, perhaps 90%.
    Number 2-I have a blocker made out of PVC pipes. It was in Spin-Off Summer 1991. I took the picture to a local lumber yard/hardware shop. They cut the pieces to fit for me, and never made fun of me! A friend made one much smaller than this one since she only does one skein at a time.
    While you’re waiting for the fleece to arrive, you might look at Yarn Harlots method of washing wool on the stove top. Perfect if you get your basement wool room finished.
    It is only good if you are doing a small batch at a time, and it scours the wool clean. I personally like a little bit of the lanolin left in the wool for personal use. But I will scour fleece to sell at the yarn store.
    And one last thing-I am babbling now- I have a card taped to my mirror in the bathroom that I have to look at really hard periodically.
    Never Doubt The Path You’ve Chosen.

    HI Meghan, I love listening to your podcast. Our boys aren’t too far apart in age. I struggle to get my hair combed in the morning. So it is inspiring to see you manage things like a charity blanket, new spinning techniques, gardening, but best of all, your little man (It is good to hear that he is doing so well). I work full time, and love what I do… but with an office move coming in the next few years, I have to re-think my job situation. Priorities change once the little people come into the picture. It was interesting to hear your take on your music. It has always been a big part of my life (I met my hubby in high school marching band). Even though it is not my job, I was able to integrate it into my everyday life. I’m glad you’ve been able to make it a part of yours.

    Now for what I’ve learned from your podcast…
    (1) As a NEW spinner, to not be so timid. Listening to you try out new things has got me thinking and trying all sorts of things. AND I just got Maggie Casey’s book. Love it!
    (2) With your little man being a bit older than my little monster, it has definitely been a heads up for me. There aren’t too many other little people in our family right now. And of course everyone remembers their children being little angels. It has been funny to hear about “digging for gold” and know that I am not alone. :-)

    I think your Favorite Thing this week is my new Favorite Thing! I’ve spent the last 1/2 hour cruising all their videos that came up on YouTube. Amazing. But if they stand up, is their left leg bigger than their right?? :)) Regards to you, Owen and Ryan…

  11. Anitaon 06 May 2008 at 9:45 pm


    Love your favorite thing! I have told my son about it (he is my guitarist). Sent him the video to watch.

    Now, I am going to download their music.

    Thanks again.

    I am so happy to have found your podcast…I am not knitting or spinning(i took a class years ago, and it was SO FUN!!) right now, but I am so “enthused” just about creating in general while listening to your podcast. This week’s harp story really touched me…I was sewing and trying not to sob listening to what you went through. I think we all will have those moments where it feels like failure, but really it is chosing your self and your sanity–and that is never a failure. I loved that you were so honest and vulnerable sharing this story with us (me). I am so happy that you are playing your harp again. Thank you for being so open, such a good mommy, and good to yourself too. (I also busted a gut when you spoke of knitting on the couch while your husband played grand theft auto—I think it was this episode…anyway, it was SO CLASSIC and HILARIOUS!) Keep laughing!
