The Mindfulness in Knitting

I was recently sent Rachael Matthew’s new book The Mindfulness in Knitting to review and what a lovely book this is! I mean to talk about this on the podcast too, but I have quite a few things to review and so while I will talk about some of the aspects of the book in a later episode, I thought it would be nice to mention the details here too.

KnitBritish Survey – What’s to come

One of the things I wanted to do with the survey was to put forward a few of the ideas and suggestions I have received from you over the last wee while and gauge opinion on them. You may remember that my word for 2016 is momentum and it was with that in mind that I set out some of your suggestions.

episode 58 – Fluph : skeins ‘n’ cakes ‘n’ balls ‘n’ things

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!
