The Warm and Fuzzies, with Ursula Yeker of The Wooly Ewe and Carolyn Barnett of Barnett Knitts.

There’s something deeply satisfying about hand crafts like knitting and crochet, and needle felting. But when you think about it, there are endless benefits in the process of making something from scratch. On the back roads of Telkwa, BC there sits a yurt that’s home to the pinnacle of knitter’s paradises, called The Wooly Ewe. The owner’s name is Ursula Yeker. In the first half, Ursula and I are going to unravel those benefits I mentioned. Then, a conversation I recorded in 2015 with Carolyn Barnett, a knitter and felt crafter in Ontario who uses her bicycle to accomplish part of the felting process.
