Episode 40: You can ford the river with a llama

Here’s episode 40 of the Yarnraising podcast. Come on down and join the Yarnraising group over on Ravelry! Remember that the What are You Waiting For knitalong/spinalong/crochetalong starts on June 1 and goes through the end of July. Head over to the group for more information about that. I’m sorry that the video here gets cut off at the end. Many forces were conspiring to keep me from being able to record as I wanted to, but I figured this was better than nothing! I’m not able to do full show notes this time around, but I did want to link you to the web-based things I talked about in Five Cool Things: * the video of the Spinnekrok, the fascinating tool donnac368 linked me to * The story about natural dyes and tapestries. Here’s the upcoming show at the Met with some great tapestries. * Quilts in Space! You seriously need to watch this video.
