We hope you will enjoy listening to this chat with Deb Robson as
much as we enjoyed recording it. Gayle and I have been doing a lot
of research, and we were still nervous to talk to Deb. This woman
is a font of information! She has so much specialized knowledge and
is so eager to share it and we have so much to learn. :)
I've included a couple of links below to specific topics, projects or books that we discussed. But there is so much more! If you visit Deb's blog, poke around in the topics listed on the lower right side and read some of her older posts as well. The posts are tagged well so you can find specific information quickly.
Deb's Dreaming of Shetland project is her current baby. The Ravelry link is here. You can see the patterns included in the book.
If you are a knitter, crocheter, weaver, spinner, or crafter who uses and loves wool, consider learning more about the origins of the materials you use and love. I know, sometimes it is all I can handle to figure out my yarn substitution! But as crafters, this is part of our world too. We have the chance to learn, to teach, and widen our horizons a little bit. And yes, the sheep are cute. So I hope you will follow Gayle and I along on our Wool Series!
