5 lasses go wild for wool in Glasgow
I chat with George from Yarn Garden about their new British bases and the buzz he has for dyeing. I have a few tips for those first time Woolfesters heading to Cockermouth this weekend. I also had a very brief trip to Glasgow last week, where I ensured I finagled in a wool shop trip and meet up with Karie Westermann.
episode 7 of the KnitBritish podcast includes a trip to the Highland Wool Festival, review of oosie yarn by Skein Queen and there are twitterpated birds too
I had a very short dalliance with the Highlands this weekend.
The Highland Wool Festival has firmly been penned on my calendar since Helen, of Ripples Crafts, tweeted about it last year….
another episode and this one is full of laughter, yarn, books an wips, including a visit to Ginger Twist Studio in Edinburgh to meet Jess James and Clare Devine
some lovely words from another podcasting Scottish Louise.
Shetland Wool Week is drawing to a close. For most people it’s been a week of masterclasses and workshops, schmoozing with knitting heroes, learning from the masters and catching up with friends (old and new). That is if, unlike me, you booked tickets in time.
Just a very quick post to tell you that Made by Ewe have a new website. You may remember Linda was over here at KnitBritish a wee while ago talking about her beautiful 100% British Wool kits. Her new shop site is up and running and to celebrate she has something special for you! Check out her blog!
