 episode 56: “educational podcasting, for young and old”

on/off the needles:

-new hat for little man (another triceratops, perchance?)
-finishing the sock…still!

- cotton? for cables? what do you think?

-still collecting sweaters. even posted on freecycle!


-big boy bed!

-being green and trying cloth diapers (check out if you want to get some good used ones)

-wall-e toys sing

-jenknitfer, and her story about her little one saying “bye-bye”


-spinning and coffee don’t mix

-SOAR leftovers. 12oz of goodness! all ready to blend!
12oz of roving to blend

-a dye field trip is in my future! :)

SOAR knowledge: get to know your wheel

-practice treadling before you spin for real, treadle while you watch tv, treadle while you knit, just treadle

-get to know where it likes to be oiled, how much and how often

-get to know how to start and stop your wheel without your hands!

-practice spinning with yarn from your stash. just tie it to the bobbin, through the hooks, and through the orafice, practice feeding it on, and pulling it off again, practice adjusting your wheel to get the proper take up

-if something is wrong and you are spinning, STOP TREADLING!

favorite thing:

baking soda

    I want to put some Cool Whip on that roving and eat it all up!
    Podcast is loaded in my ipod and will go to work with me tomorrow,
    I always LOVE the anticipation.

    PS……. FLS is GORGROUS!

    Let me just say that you FLS looks amazing. Good work!

    I also purchased a Zuma! I got the eggplant color and totally love it! I’ve only had it since Tues and have gotten a ton of compliments on it!

    Your sweater looks awesome! I love my FLS!

    And YAY for you for trying cloth diapers. I switched when my now 4.5 year old was 17 months and have been using cloth from birth with my 21 month old. And soon after learned to sew from my mother-in-law (home ec teacher) so that I could sew my own cloth diapers. If you are at all interested in sewing your own, check out

    And the diva cup is one of MY favorite things!

    (Do NOT leave out the “sewing”. Ewwww.)

    Okay now that is down right beautiful!!! I know you learned alot of this at soar, but any place or book you would recommend to check out. I’m interested in the hand carding aspect too. Don’t want to drop the big bucks on a drum carder and I kinda like the nostalgic aspect of hand carding!!! My dad and his family were sheep ranchers in Montana when he was a kid, so I kinda feel like I’m carrying on a tradition, only problem is he doesn’t know much about handcarding and his mom passed away many years ago. Goodness, I’m sharing my life story here, anyhoo, beautiful job to say the least!!!!

    I did a really heavily cabled Debbie Bliss sweater for my daughter out of Pakucho Cotton several years ago, and it worked great. It’s too small for her now, but the stitch definition is amazing and it was probably the most complimented sweater she had at the time. One caveat: because cotton lacks the elasticity of wool, be sure not too make the cuff and neck edges too tight, because they won’t stretch much and will wear when putting it on and taking it off. Not sure if your cotton is matte or mercerized, but mercerized cotton will probably have longer wear.
