Podcasting for me is on the back burner at this time. I plan to return with the Tour de Fleece in July 2021.

YST Episode 188 How old is that fiber
25:22A short podcast talking about the last five skeins in the yarn wash up, and my recent spinning. I mention fiber from a Phatt fiber box, they can be found here. The other fiber I have been spinning awhile is from Hobby Lobby. I finally looked it up online and can provide a link. I am spinning Yarn Bee Showstopper in the Winter Solstice colorway.
YST Episode 187 The big wash up
37:46After I spin a skein of yarn, it needs to be washed. I put this off until I have enough to take several days of washing. I also talk about doing a burn test on fiber to determine the fiber content. One was a very big surprise! The flow chart I was using for this burn test can be found here. My pack of luxury fibers contained white angora and it is shown on the Nano spinning wheel in the photo with this podcast. The pack of fibers came from Sericin Silk Etsy store.
YST Episode 186
33:10This podcast is for the week of Sept 5th, and talks about prepping cormo fiber for the dyepot, and spinning a merino silk bamboo blend. I also refer to two past podcasts so here are the links: Episode 38 talks about buying a fleece. Episode 39 talks about buying non wool fibers and how to store all fibers. Also the ghost story that I wrote is at the end of this episode. The fiber I was spinning was from Wooliebullie. Right now the Etsy store is only selling art batts, and hand knitted items.
YST Episode 185 A Yin Yang fleece
28:45A catch up podcast talking about Stashdash, the state fair and a black and white Shetland fleece. Stashdash is a challenge created by the podcast TheKnitGirlls. The young spinner I mention in the state fair has grown up and now has her own fiber business at Cedar Ridge Fiber Farm. If you would like to see the daily streams I did during Tour de Fleece, they are archived here. I am still uploading those, but all will be there soon. My current streams can be found at Yarnspinnerstales on Twitch.TV
July 26 2021 An Open ended Absence
5:28Just a brief note to fill those of you that haven't heard of my Mom's illness. I have to stop the podcast for awhile, as I spend time with her.
YST Episode 184 07/21/21
27:21A tiny but perfectly acceptable spinning wheel is being 3D printed by Dreaming Robots. I have the smaller version called the Nano and I talk about it in this podcast. I purchased it at the Hoosier Hill fiber fair at the booth for Susan's fiber shop. I referenced the book Big Book of Handspinning by Alden Amos. This is just one source for the book.
YST Episode 183 07/19/21
19:07The podcasts will have a new format starting with this one. The good news is they will be more frequent, and the maybe or maybe not bad news is they will be shorter. For years I have been using this podcast to teach many things about the spinning of yarn. Those are available on the website by checking under archives. There is even listings of the episode topics to find specific podcasts. With the future podcasts, I will be sharing my experiences and stories of working with fiber everyday. These will be dated with the episode number but not about specific topics. I am still streaming three days a week on Twitch.tv on Wednesday, Friday and Sundays. I just completed streaming all 21 days of the Tour de Fleece and these can be found on my Twitch page under Yarnspinnerstales. There is a lot of spinning there, and it is a good way to catch up on what I have been doing lately. Thank you for all the years you have joined me on this Journey! And as always, happy spinning.
YST A Brief Hello
3:46Podcasting for me is on the back burner at this time. I plan to return with the Tour de Fleece in July 2021.
YST Episode 182 Welsh Sheep breeds review
59:06Last podcast of 2020 and maybe the last breed reviews I do for awhile. It is time to move forward into other areas of spinning and the new year seems a good time to start. The breeds reviewed today are Llanowag and Lleyn. The fiber was part of a Welsh breed study pack from Wychwood Spinners This podcast was created from the audio of a livestream I did when I reviewed these fibers. It is different than my normal podcasting, but I think the addition of the actual sounds of processing and spinning is unique enough to be interesting. Happy New Year! and of course may it contain much spinning!
YST Correction on Livestream Archiving information
3:49In the last two podcasts, for some reason I said the livestreams were archived on Facebook, which is not true. I didn't even catch it as I was editing. Instead of the tedious process of edit and releasing the episodes, I decided to record this separate little audio. The livestreams originate on Twitch.TV under Yarnspinnerstales The videos will stay there for a month to six weeks, if you do not catch me when I am live streaming. After that, the videos are archived to you tube. Once you go to you tube, in the search box type lusi222 channel. That should take you to my channel. Be sure when you go to the video area, you find where it says all videos, to be able to catch them from the beginning. Or the most recent will be quickly available right on top. If you subscribe to my lusi222 channel, you should be notified when a new video is uploaded. I will try a direct link here, but if it doesn't work, follow my suggestion above. I have to decide which of the livestreams are uploaded to archive, so I am not selecting all of them. Much of the Sunday afternoon livestreams, are just for spinning and chatting. I am focusing on the livestreams that I teach something about spinning or using hand spun yarn, to select what I am uploading. I hope that will let these livestreams have interest over the years ahead, just as my podcasts have over the last thirteen years. Happy listening, watching, and of course, spinning!
