A New Podcast For Your Listening Pleasure

From small batch wool producer Abundant Earth Fiber is Modern Wool, a new podcast about the subject they know best: sustainable, small-batch wool. Its four inaugural episodes – hosted by Lydia Christiansen – have covered wool scouring, spinning, and quality, and future episodes plan to cover everything from cottage mills to fiber farms to discerning hand-crafters. The podcast will even field your questions – just call their Modern Wool Podcast Line and leave a message. You just may hear your question on one of their monthly episodes.

CAST ON: Berry Skies by Martina Behm

Originally published as part of her 2018 Strickmich! Club, Berry Skies is now available as a single purchase download on Ravelry. With an unusual construction and lots of trendy stripes, this accessory looks like a scarf but fits like a cowl. The designer suggests three colors of fingering weight yarn to work in garter stitch throughout the entire project (it’s worked flat), but gives you the freedom on which way to wear it. You choose which side is right and which is wrong depending on your color preference. Will this become your most versatile accessory like the designer claims? There’s only one way to find out!
