Episode Four: Nerds, Fiber Arts, and LGDs

My guest today is Ila Dezarn of Wampa Stomp Farm. We discuss what happens at the intersection of nerd culture and fiber arts! This interview is the last of the Windows 10 vs. Yeti microphone battle; although upcoming episodes may have some issues with phone call quality, anything I do in person will sound great! Thanks for sticking with me.

Ila's fabulous projects bags come from Slipped Stich Studio. They have wonderful sets in a variety of nerdy patterns and the bags are quality as well as cute!

The Geek-Along Blanket can be found at Lattes and Llamas. For awesome geeky outfits and accessories, visit Her Universe. Or knit your own Jayne hat! Kentucky Blue Fiber Co. has beautiful yarns and ideas. I have been known to repost some of Annette's great crafts and articles on Facebook.

You can find wonderful alpacas and Italian Maremma sheepdogs at River Hill Ranch. If you like looking at exotic animals, like Appa the Camel, visit Blue Belle Hills Farm.

Finally, please consider using your fiber skills to make items for premature or stillborn babies. This very special project can be found at
