Curious Handmade Podcast 150Welcome to my first full Curious Handmade podcast episode.

I’m  exited to tell you about my trip up to Glasgow for the Glasgow School of Yarn last weekend.

Not only that but I am so thrilled to be able to share with you an interview with Amy Singer from If you are a fan of Knitty which many of us are, or perhaps have even thought about submitting a pattern to be published in Knitty then you definitely want to listen to this interview. You can find out how Amy started out creating the online knitting magazine and what happens behind the scenes of putting an issue together.

Thank you to Libby from Truly Myrtle for your comments and lovely encouragement for my introductory episode last week.
