Loved hearing about your new design Noticed it on Ravelry the other day. I am such a fan of leaves that I am tempted to give it a try, even though I seldom wear pullovers.

It was wonderful to hear about the conservation efffort in Argentina - and even more wonderful to know that wool will be part of the results!

Alison said...

Thanks so much for turning me on to the work of the Nature Conservancy. I am highly interested in the journey of wool from sheep to skein, and of the cultural, economic and environmental impact on societies/countries. You can check out Clara Parkes' The Great White Bale http://www.clarayarn.com/bale/ for her journey through the American wool industry. The Yarniacs, another podcast, has also been doing a wool series and featuring Deb Robson from the Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook. Your information has been a great addition to my "study" on this topic.

I have both liked the NC on Facebook and are following them on Twitter.

Kristine said...

I am following onTwitter!

I found your site through your lovely Sprig pattern (which is officially my next knit) and I sure am glad I did! I am currently studying to be a librarian and posted your podcast page for my storytelling class (we share resources via Delicious as part of the course) since both you and your guests do such a lovely job. :)
