I love those knit/purl sock patterns. I made a pair of Cinder Block socks for Oscar a few years back, perfect summer knitting.

I am so glad I have been popping in regularly to check your blog. I nabbed my copy immediately, before I finished reading the first paragraph of your post. I am pleased and proud to help keep you out there gathering a body of knowledge whose affects will stretch into the future. Yay!!!

Oh yes please! Toss my hat in the ring, it looks like a fascinating book :-}

Thanks for the lovely introduction, just enough to entice me! I too love learning all the nooks and crannies of textile art. If not all, than as many as I can fit in to one lifetime :-}

I am breathing in, imagining I can smell them. I grew up out in the country, and some of my favorite scents are related to livestock (not pigs particularly but sheep and bovines.) I might buy some raw yak fiber just to experience that scent, too. I used to walk a mile out of my way in Japan so I could pass by some closed gates that hid cows, so I could breath the scent of home.

Although my heart would prefer to spin using only my own muscles, circumstances make an electric wheel the best choice for me. It is a fairly steep learning curve going from a hand spindle to an electric machine, but I think will be worth it. Reading your blog (and the F&F Sourcebook) have fanned my interest in rare wools and I think the best way to explore them is via spinning and perhaps using them as part of collage-type artwork next year. Thanks for the inspiration Deb :-}

I would say you raised a very high-fiber (and loving) harvest :-}

Lovely sweater! I would have loved that class, but (although tons closer than others you have taught) was a bit outside my comfort range :-} I just received shipment on my new electric spinning machine, built by friend Teri (Dreamspinner). I have a lot to learn, but that is exciting!

Lovely post, thank you Jaala! I enjoy learning about the nuts and bolts of creating. And the yarn is gorgeous. I especially like that you used so many textures in your swatch, very informative.
