This is a bit of info on the Breed swatch-along, which cast on on Monday!
Today I’ve got Helen Ingram from Woolly Chic coming around for a virtual cuppa. Grab one too and join us for five questions.

I review Romney Marsh Wools new grey DK weight yarn, which just begs to be knit in garter! (other well defined stitches are available)
Woolly news and events, sheep sponsorship and quite a lot of casting on (for me!) Get the kettle on and join me for episode 31
having a look at the breed yarn that I am knitting my Lush cardigan in.
sheep sponsorship, awareness-raising knitting, cardigan love and the looming FOMO at Unwind Brighton
