This episode is a bit of meander through my recent Highland honeymoon (cos, yep! I got married!) I also talk about my holiday WIPs and draw the winners for the #bookofhapsalong prizes!
Katie – lover and dyer of British wool and fibre at Sylvan Tiger – gave me a pack of her gradient 4ply Shetland in the Bumblebee colourway. I was so excited by the colours, but also the velvety squish of the yarns.
I have been playing with some incredible yarn recently and it is time to share it with you! If you follow me on instagram you may have seen me showing off my swatch of Phileas Yarns Wanderlust BFL recently.
There is one week to go to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival and I encourage you to get those hidden WIPs out and start making plans for your languishing projects before stocking up on more yarn at the weekend!
it’s a long one! I look back at 2015 and think ahead a little.
Yes! You read it correctly – I am finally knitting socks! This episode contains my socks-ploration, a yarn review of WYS Illustrious and a preview of In The Footsteps of Sheep, by Debbie Zawinski.
It’s autmuny/wintery; the clocks have changed and a darker period of the year is opening up in front of us offering us more knitting time…is that what I want to cast on all the things??
I review Romney Marsh Wools new grey DK weight yarn, which just begs to be knit in garter! (other well defined stitches are available)
