Today we have a chat with our Woolly Mucker Mazzy Fautley and I have an interview with designer Francesca Hughes.
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….
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.
I’m at sixes and sevens this episode, so lets have a little knit and a slower pace!
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!
We could all do with a big of balance at the moment, couldn’t we? With so much up in the air at the moment and so much of the skewed in the world at large – I aim for us to have a wee bit of balance over here in our little corner! I have got a meaningful knit story for you, (which was recovered from the big laptop death!) last year I spoke to Joanna Mouatt about two pairs of mittens her late Grannie made for her. There is also a Tale of the WIPs of Dooooom – cos balance! – Book of Hapsalong and more!
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!
