Last week I went to Dundee to visit yarn shop Fluph and the wondrous proprietress Leona Jayne Kelly (and her two dogs Oskar and Arthur). We talk about wool, dyeing, the day-to-day of running a yarn shop and the juggling involved. We have a right old laugh too and listen in for a lovely give-away too!
Here we are with part two of my interview with Rachel Atkinson. Today we discuss labels, learning curves and the future of British wool!
Today I have the first part of an interview with Rachel Atkinson. We chat about her new yarn Daughter of a Shepherd ahead of it’s debut at Edinburgh Yarn Festival
This week I am excited to tell you about Whistlebare and introduce you to Alice Elsworth who is hear to talk about her home grown and dyed mohair and wensleydale yarns.
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
I will be at Shetland Wool Week and I will have my mic with me! Are you going to Shetland too? Bring your stories of your meaningful knits and tell me about your Wool Week experiences!
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!
Today I’ve got Helen Ingram from Woolly Chic coming around for a virtual cuppa. Grab one too and join us for five questions.
This summer Helen launched her Woolly Chic wool. A blend of Dorset, Ryeland and Texel wool; she has called this the Pembrokeshire wool, after the Welsh location of the flocks on her family’s farm.
