Episode 160 - Wool Room Clean Up

Warning: there is A LOT of yarn and fiber in this video. If that's not your kind of thing, I suggest you turn back now!

My 'wool room' was desperate to be tidied up and organized, so I decided to film it so I would have some company and extra motivation along the way.  Thank you for keeping me company!

I like to use Extra Large Ziploc bags as well as 62 and 99 liter Sterilite containers to keep everything organized and safe from the possibility of pests.

We'll be back to the regularly formatted show for Episode 161 in about a week.

Episode 159 - Spinzilla 2017 Recap

I spun up 4,040 Spinzilla yards including plying!

The fiber I spun was:
Sweet Georgia Superwash Targhee, Sept 2015 Club colorway, Open Hands
Sweet Georgia Superwash Merino, Phoenix Rising

Other fibers on my spinning list (that I didn't get to) included:
Sweet Georgia Silk Puff in the Spinzilla 2017 colorway, Firestarter. Watch for this spin coming up in the next few months.

I just started a sweater spin from some World of Wool Oatmeal BFL that has been in my stash since about 2015.

I mentioned Susan B. Anderson's Smooth Operator Socks as well as Kirbywirby's YouTube video on afterthought heels. Both of these were suggestions I got when I asked about favorite afterthought heel socks on Instagram.

I'm nearing the heels on my Biscotte Yarns Bis-Sock in Pansies.

The sweaters I show are both by Josee Paquin, the purple is Miranda and the red is Tolmie.

My fall scent obsession is the "Hello Fall' and "Let's Stay Home" candles from Bath and Body Works.
