The WoolWork Small Gestures Swap this year will take the form of a Card or Letter swap
T’is the season that I love the most – the engoldening!
Friends and listener, the urge came upon me to record today – and the set up was poor – but I felt the need to sit down and chat. There are drafts, draughts, small gestures thoughts and poetry!
Latest finished object: The Gryer Shawl in Shilasdair botanic dyed yarn
Update: No feedback or apology from Rav. very disappointed. These tips might help you access the new interface for the time being
A new episode (kind of)
There’s some kind of festive holiday happening soon?!
Hello wool pals, settle in – there is a lot of woolly magic to get through in this episode. There is an interview with Esther Rutter, author of This Golden Fleece and a recording from Fine Fettle Fibres, with Alice Underwood from the Rare Breed Survival Trust.
Do you need more inspiration for the Tin Can Knits-along? I’ve got some for you right here and who knows how many you may be able to make during our winter KAL (1 Dec-14 Feb) I’ve knit and re-knit quite a lot of TCK accessories, and here are the ones calling out to me for this KAL, as well as the ones which are calling out to me again. All images (unless otherwise noted) belong to Tin Can Knits and are used with kind permission. | Heads I made Loch from Handmade in the UK and I gave it away as a present – what a fool! haha! It was in Ripples Craft Sport and I really need to make it again – there are matching mittens too! Mountain Mist appears in Strange Brew and I think this would be beautiful in natural colours – but you could go mad, couldn’t you? Make them for all the family in their favourite shades.
