The podcast is back to the normal podcast schedule! Be warned – Jeremy, the podcat, gets athletic in this episode.
- How were the recent woolly events? I am heading to Yarndale in September!
- Town End Alpaca‘s charming Shetland Alpaca yarn and their Swallows and Amazons collaboration with True Brit Knits
- Shetland Knitting Terms – What is a Hesp and a hespetre? Also check out the great Dictionary of Scottish language
- LushPodKAL – have you cast on yet with Shinybees, KnitSpinCake, Caithness Craft Collective and all the LushPodKal-ers and I? I am using Wensleydale Longwool Sheepshop & get slightly pornographic when I tell you why you should try wools that you think you can’t wear next to your skin! (n.b. if you are genuinely allergic to wool do not to as I do!)
- Head to Toe Give-away (see entry rules at bottom) and news of Clare Devine’s new patterns Tarsi Grande & Brevis Grande.
- Susan Crawford’s new vintage style 3ply weight Fenella – a dreamy yarn perfect for vintage garments and Fair Isle. Susan is also looking for experienced knitters for her Vintage Shetland Project (I realise, post-edit, that it sounds like I say the yarn is reared and sheared & spun at John Arbon. I mean reared and sheared in the UK!)
p.s. the seagull sounds are the seagulls currently living next to my office. The tweety birds are the birds at my bus stop!
