This week is all about weaving with a rigid heddle loom! Hear all about Kelley's adventures in weaving as she chats with Jenny about rigid heddle looms. Kelley also shares great advice for new weavers and why is it great for using up both larger and smaller amounts of yarns that you might have hiding in your stash. Kelley also reviews two of her most loved weaving books along with her favorite tool for planning out projects, the Ultimate 3-in-1 Color Tool. Finally, Kelley catches you up on the projects she is planning out for her road trip.

During the last weekend in September, the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival took place here in Canby, Oregon! OFFF is one of Alison's favorite fiber festivals and this year, she was able to get Kelley, who has never attended OFFF before, to join along! Hear all about the different fibers, yarns, animals, and other treats Alison and Kelley discovered at OFFF. Next, Kelley talks about about reworking a pair of socks currently on her needles and shares her own stitch pattern that she created for the socks (see pattern below). Lastly, if you have too much fiber or undyed yarn that you have spun up, Kelley reviews two books on natural dyeing and how you can use what you find in your backyard or kitchen to create unique yarns.
Kelley's Sock Stitch Pattern:
Row 1: slip 1, knit 1
