(Photo taken in 2019 – PreCovid!) Hello and welcome, its’s March and it is spring…ish! Listen to the podcast Also available on Spotify, iTunes and wherever you find your podcasts! | Making!

There is a lot of making good on intentions in that thread! | Cast on / Cast off I finished my second Felix sweater by Amy Christoffers/ Savoury Knitting for my sister’s birthday. No image of the second, but here’s my first! Many times over, with lovely pals, at EYF2019. It was also made in Iona Wool. I have a bit of a rant about the visual inaccessibility of the patterns and layout in Laine magazine. I had got this magazine specifically for the Poet sweater, by Sari Nordlund. I got the yarn that I wanted to use – Bealach Astair from Uist Wool – however the pattern was not laid out well in the magazine. As well as the page being grey/beige, …
Ooh dear! I’ve been struggling to get some creative energy going to make this episode. Something is better than nothing, right? New yarn, EYF news and Cheviot Wool Exploration
