153 I, Curator

Rats, Riverview, and the Red Edge. Plus, we are all hipsters now. Sorry.

There’s a good description of the Iceland Bind Off here. The GIF at the bottom of the page is golden.

For top down set in sleeves, Elizabeth Doherty has you covered.

Sincere thanks to my friend, Laura Bellows, for her insights into fashion bricolage in the artist communities of Bali.

Music in this podcast:


I’m a serial maker of podcasts, and many things that are not podcasts. I love playing with yarn, fibre and cloth. I will never accept that furniture in my living room only goes two ways. Almost every night, I dream about houses.

      Nope. Nobody’s mentioned it. Thank you, Marilyn. I’ll investigate at once.

    Hi Brenda. I’m enjoying catching up on old episodes. I like listening while I weave, which apparently I haven’t done for a very long time. In any case, I went searching for Riverview on Ravelry and couldn’t find it. Turns out that’s because it’s actually called Riverfront. 😊 I know you can’t change the recording but thought you might want to edit the show notes.
