what a great week it’s been – a woman in the TARDIS and some awesome ladies on the show today!
The sponsors of the next episode of the podcast will be Croft 29, a small family business creating wool from their Hebridean flocks on Skye. I think the story behind their business is really special and wanted to share an interview with them here on the blog. Put the kettle on and join us….
EYF excitement is hitting the peak. Orly one week to go and I have to talk about the great British wool that will be on offer there. Also there is a preview of the new Blacker Yarn, Samite!
If like me you feel the need to cast on all the things, you could start with Ann Kingstone’s new mini collection Tup Knits!
Today Cornish Tin II from Blacker Yarns is launched!
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 quiet for the last fortnight, or so.
While I have been working on future podcast episodes and other KB work (and dealing with a rather lengthy and annoying dose of sciatica), I’ve been largely avoiding social media.
Need a distraction too? Read on and see some sheep!
