ahem…we get a little raised of voice at the very start of the podcast – it is warranted, but I dont intend on making a habit of it…then its all full on WOOL!
As you know, I love books. I would be no kind of book lover if I did not share this with you. This month I have three book giveaways for you – today it is Hillary Gran’t lovely book Knitting from the North
Let’s have a little giveaway which enables some *you* time!
Today Cornish Tin II from Blacker Yarns is launched!
This week I am hearing all about inspiration and how it can tell amazing stories in colour and design. Karie Westermann is here to talk about the catalysts behind This Thing of Paper and how her love of books and manuscripts is being translated into her new designs for the book. Sylvie, of Phileas Yarns, popped over to talk about how her travel memories are dyed into colourways on sumptuous yarn bases. Get your cuppa and listen via the player below!
Joy McMillan, The Knitting Goddess joins me for a chat today and we talk about her life before dyeing, the dye process and the incredible British wool bases that she loves to create with and exciting tidbits about new yarns!!
Today I discover how one ball of yarn can be so versatile in creating different fabrics! I also have an incredible chance for you to win a very special bespoke hand-dyed yarn.
Last week I went to Dundee to visit yarn shop Fluph and the wondrous proprietress Leona Jayne Kelly (and her two dogs Oskar and Arthur). We talk about wool, dyeing, the day-to-day of running a yarn shop and the juggling involved. We have a right old laugh too and listen in for a lovely give-away too!
