Today I have Joy McMillan, AKA The Knitting Goddess, coming around for a cuppa and five questions. Pour yourself a cup too and join us as Joy talks about the importance of using British wool, her (un)typical day, as well as clubs and socks. Speaking of socks there is a really lovely sock-related give-away at the end of this post, courtesy of Jot
There is a very distinct Shetland flavour to this episode as I get excited for wool week. I also have a review of the Shetland Wool Week Annual and of Hazel Tindall’s wonderful DVD The Fine Art of Fair Isle Knitting and I have some news of Shetland knitting based trips if you can’t make it to wool week this year.
I always tell you to grab a drink along with your WIP, but today you need to get your nicest china out and grab a cake, biscuit or sweet treat of your choice because today Jess James and Clare Devine are coming over to KnitBritish for a tea party to celebrate their Tea Collection hat pattern bonanza!
The #hapalong is almost at an end. Join me for a look back at this memorable KAL.
Ever since Karie Westermann released her Scollay cardigan I have had lots of you asking me if there would be a KnitBritish KAL to coincide. Myself and my cohort-in-British-wool Isla, from BritYarn, have been planning this for weeks and you can now sign up to the Scollayalong KAL!
ooh! what a lot has been going on since last we spoke! Get in here for a right wee blether with me, BritYarn, all things IBYC and a KAL!
Need an injection of colour and fun with practical, invaluable instruction on sock construction? Look no further!
