This week I am back with an episode looking at the Breed swatchalong, a new feature on the stories behind our stitches and I give you the lowdown on the Edinburgh Yarn Festival!
I will tell you all about my Shetland Wool Week in the next episode of the podcast, but here are some of my images to hold you over until then. You can also listen to short Shetland Wool Week podcasts which I recorded each day of the event on the Shetland Wool Week blog!
The enthusiasm of people who have expressed interest in taking part in the Breed Swatch-along is infectious, but it also makes me giggle a bit too. Here we all are, a bunch of wool-loving crafters all getting excited about knitting single breed swatches….SWATCHES…the one thing we know we should all do when it comes to approaching any knitted item and the one thing that most of us do not do.
As promised here is an info post for any questions you may have about the Breed Swatchalong.
I have created some Pinterest boards for British breed wool from each category of the swatch-along for inspiration and interest. Obviously I can’t guarantee stock levels or anything like that, but hopefully this will give you a little idea of what is out there.
