WoolWork is the new name for KnitBritish Join me on my journey of woolly discovery celebrating the unique characteristics of local wool, from sheep to skein, to finished object. You can visit knitbritish.net and follow me on twitter and IG @_woolwork
Shownotes are at Knitbritish.net with links and images.
Today I am mulling over ideas of knitting for others, including knitting for the knitwothy and being paid for your work. If you take anything away from this episode remember that what you do as a skilled craftsperson deserves merit and is very valuable!
I also have two meaningful knit stories, from Nancy and Elaine, on recieving knittted items from others.
And if you are finding it hard to deflect requests for knitted items, I have a very handy cut-out-and-keep missive for you to give out
N.B. contains the words "sh!tty, sh!tty, sh!tty, f*cking" in relation to the US election. Please don't listen if you don't want to!
