YST Episode 14 June Spin In
Jun 20 2008
Spinning on my front porch, means cool morning air, birdsong and the occasional cow mooing in the background. But the topic of the yarnspinnerstale this month is very cool, as I tell all about my recent cruise to Alaska with Seasocks 08. Before that though, I discuss two sheep breeds from my rare breed sampler: Cormo and Montadale. The photo is from some of the cormo spun from combed top pulled through a diz. Music for this podcast is from the Podsafe Music Network. New music artists include: Janet Spahr with Rosemary Damh the Bard with Lady of the Silver Wheel And special thanks to Wren Ross for letting me use Baa Baa Black sheep with the sheep fleece reviews, and to Clare Dowling for the opening Spinning song. A few links I said I would include are: Amy Singer her webpage is here. Amy taught a shawl Plug and Play class on the cruise. Crissy Gardner, and Heather Ordover each taught in the Heels, Heels, Heels classes. And Brenda Dayne, talking all about her experiences podcasting, was the highlight of the trip, for this podcaster. Finally, I issue an Olympic challenge. I did this for the winter Olympics, and the blog entry is in the archives from my blog. But I am in the mood to do something different this time, and talk about that in the podcast. I hope you will join me in August as I watch the Olympics and take on your own Olympic spinning challenge. You have a bit of time, but don't dally, the challenge starts 08/08/08. Happy summer solstice!
