This episode I bring you a wee interview I’ve been waiting for the right time to bring you, all about connections to pattern traditions, family, landscape and place. Also we meet this month’s woolly mucker, Alison Mayne and chat a little with her about wool, patterns and community. There is also a review and a giveaway of Zen Variations from Renee Callahan!
The Remakery is essentially a bit of motivation or focus to cast on again one of those designs that we’ve always promised ourselves we’ll make again. I’d be utterly delighted if you wanted to use this as motivation to remake some of your favourites. There are no rules or requirements, you can remake absolutely anything and there isn’t a cast on date or anything…
Sometimes, there is a design that we always mean to make again, but never quite get round to it.
It’s there, it’s on the queue, you often look at it and think about casting on… you probably even have the yarn for it, don’t you?!
Welcome in to this episode; where I think I may just about have gotten over EYF…maybe!. This episode meet our first woolly mucker!
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.
The one thing that most of you know is that you want to knit ALL the haps in Kate Davies’ The Book of Haps. Deciding on which one to cast on first is the tricky thing and then the next question is, which yarn?!
Announcing the return of the hapalong. I’ve been thinking since the last hapalong that there should be a little celebration of this book with another KAL. The fact that the hapalong is mentioned in the book means that your own hap projects have been saluted too and that is definitely worth casting on another hap, isn’t it?
