Midnight Fiber and Fabric Podcast, Episode 11: Inspiration

Two weeks ago we ran away from home for a vacation. I took a lot of yarn and worked on my mom's socks and my berry socks. I took more than that, including some handspun dyed by Nerd Girl Yarns (and purchased at Maker Faire) I also took yarn for the Nutkin sock pattern and the baby hat I've been working on.

I talk a little bit about making project bags and why I didn't take my Citron. I finished my 3rd bobbin of merino and I'm ready to work on plying.

Inspiration is the word of the day and I talk about how it strikes and how creative folks have to work at it daily instead of waiting for inspiration to strike.

We talk about 5 Inspiring Patterns:

Snowflake Fingerless Gloves   ::   Braid Hills   ::   Regenerate   ::   Hiro   ::   Starry Starry Night Socks

We talk about refreshing our art area with new paints, clay and canvas. I'm also exploring embroidery.

I mention a recent Circe podcast abut using your summer hours productively, the Coletterie blog's series The Wardrobe Architect, and The Art of Simple Podcast.
