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?
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.
Last year I didn’t have a lot of idea about what I wanted to buy (apart from a loom) and so I just bought things with my itchy knitty grabby hands! Come and see what I got.
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 New Year and it’s also the 2nd anniversary of the KnitBritish Podcast! Happy New Year, lovely listeners! KnitBritish is stepping gaily into the third year of the podcast
