Landline and other news (October 2013)

This is not a "proper" Yarn, just a quick note to let you know that ABC Landline is running a segment on my farm and White Gum Wool yarn this coming Sunday, November 24th.  The program starts at 12 noon, EDT.  It can also be accessed for the following couple of weeks through http://abc.net.au/iview if you go to All Programs, then ABC1 and look for Landline.

In other news, Rangelands Journal in the US has recently published a paper by Fred Provenza and others (including me) entitled  Complex Creative Systems.  While formally technical, it is an easy read, and gives a good overview of what the nutritional wisdom concept is all about, and how people like me are putting it into practice.  Here's the pdf file: Complex Creative Systems, which you can also find on the website under Science, Technical Papers.

Just to let you know, Felix, Clara and Sabrina are doing fine, and have been joined by Vicky-Victoria and Georgie-girl.  The names, in case you are wondering, just come to me out of the ether.  Actually, I got Vicky's name wrong--tried calling her Lizzie, but it just didn't stick.

And the last bit of news is that the new colours in the 8- and 4-ply yarns are here!  The boucle won't make it until sometime in December- it still hasn't left NZ.

Oh, and if you've missed earlier Yarns from the Farm, you can find them all on the website--just click on the last menu item on the home page--Yarns from the Farm.
