This episode I bring you a wee interview I’ve been waiting for the right time to bring you, all about connections to pattern traditions, family, landscape and place. Also we meet this month’s woolly mucker, Alison Mayne and chat a little with her about wool, patterns and community. There is also a review and a giveaway of Zen Variations from Renee Callahan!
The Remakery is essentially a bit of motivation or focus to cast on again one of those designs that we’ve always promised ourselves we’ll make again. I’d be utterly delighted if you wanted to use this as motivation to remake some of your favourites. There are no rules or requirements, you can remake absolutely anything and there isn’t a cast on date or anything…
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….
Welcome in to this episode; where I think I may just about have gotten over EYF…maybe!. This episode meet our first woolly mucker!
Today I am wondering If I make a list for EYF am I going to be able to stick to it?
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!
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!
I’m really delighted to be able to bring you two interviews from some incredible people who are working to their own vision for creating incredibly unique British wool that speaks of where it has come from and the special relationships with farmer and mill to create those yarns.
