episode 20 and the podiversary

17-04-2017

It's the 1st Podiversary! Join in, but keep the twiglets away from me!

 

Since last we met there have been lots of planning and scheduling for KnitBritish and also Podcast Lounge. Also there has been some planning with Jo [from Shinybees.com] for a future collaboration!

 

 

 

I read out some of the entries for the Podiversary Prize and lots of your lovely messages about KnitBritish. Arising from that I mention the importance of knitting local, if British wool isn't available in your neck of the woods. There is a lot of love for Blacker Yarns in this section with lots of you wanting to discover more breeds. I point sock knitters in the direction of Clare Devine's interview with Sue Blacker about nylon-less UK sock wools, which Clare did for Wovember 2014 [http://tinyurl.com/o76aqbz]
