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!
Since last time I’ve been up to the top of the map, down to Yorkshire and then back to Edinburgh. Come in and have a listen to what I’ve been getting up to.
My pictures of Shetland Wool Week 2016
I’m at sixes and sevens this episode, so lets have a little knit and a slower pace!
Today I am talking about my own meaningful knit and show sponsor Joy McMillan talks about an exciting new yarn collaboration between The Knitting Goddess and Blacker Yarns!
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.
There is just so much happiness happening in the knitty booky world. I feel the need to spread the cheer a bit.
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!!
