Fall is always crazy-busy when you work in the yarn industry. In this episode, I’m talking about gearing myself up (logistically and psychologically!) for the next week. I’ve got a book signing, a TV taping, and Rhinebeck coming up—all in the next seven days. Wheeee!

Today’s technique segment shows how to wind a center-pull ball when you don’t have a ball winder—and how to make a butterfly-type yarn bobbin.

Yarn has a memory: memory of what it once was, what you’ve knit it into, and even where you bought it. Today’s discussion focuses on several kinds of memories tied up in yarn: I review SilverSpun yarn, talk about my trip to Arkansas Fiberarts Extravaganza, and marvel at the incredible gift given to me by the now-defunct Yarn Harvest company.

For the technique segment at the end, I talk about how to get a skein of yarn back into near-mint condition if you’ve already knit with it, need to frog it, and want to knit with it again.
