Today on the podcast I’m finally getting to look back on my time at EYF, after leaving you on a bit of a cliffhanger last week. I chat about the joys of meeting some wonderful podcasters in the Blacker Yarns Podcaster Lounge, explore some new-to-me knitting podcasts, and fill you in on some of my EYF purchases! I’ve also got the name of the Interpretations Giveaway winner and some more info about the new giveaway for the Impressionists Mystery Knit Along.

Show Sponsors:

Alongside an eclectic yarn range, which includes Hazel Knits, Icelandic Lopi & CoopKnits, we stock a carefully chosen selection of needles and notions. We’ve also recently launched ‘hand dyed by meadowyarn’, our very own in-house, hand-dyed yarn range. Working in our tiny dye studio, nestled in the Suffolk countryside, we are able to indulge our love of colour, producing complex tonal, kettle-dyed shades across a range of weights and bases. With regular updates our collections evolve and grow, inspired by the landscape and people around us.

AYS is a wool boutique specializing in hand dyed yarns and luxury fibres from around the world. You’ll always find a well curated collection of yarns and colors on the shelves and a friendly knowledgeable staff on hand. Some of our favorite brands include Hedgehog Fibres, SweetGeorgia Yarn, Julie Asselin, Shibui Knits and The Fibre Co. You can find A Yarn Story on Walcot Street in Bath or online at www.ayarnstory.co.uk

Today on the podcast I have one more peek forward at the EYF, which is happening this weekend, and then dive into a review of the latest gorgeous collaboration between super talented designers Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki. As a special 5th anniversary treat, they’ve paired each of the patterns in their Interpretations Vol. 5 collection with a custom colourway from a wonderful indie dyer. I fall in love with some of these very special yarns and try my best to narrow down my favourite patterns from the book. Be sure to listen for your chance to win a copy of Interpretations Vol. 5 in our giveaway!

Curious Handmade Knitting Podcast Episode 161

Beautiful books of all kinds have always been a big part of my creative growth, so in this episode I’m delighted to bring you another book review. This time I’m talking about the gorgeous new volume of the Interpretations series, the latest instalment of an ongoing collaboration between two intensely talented designers.

Show Sponsors:

Meadow Yarn

Meadow Yarn was born out of a passion for beautiful yarn and knitting accessories and aims to bring you a range of great products. Yarns stocked include Northbound Knitting, Eden Cottage Yarn, the Fibre Co and many more.

Contest Winner:

Victoria has won a copy of Hannah Fettig’s new book Texture! Here’s Victoria’s comment:

“This book looks truly beautiful – there’s not a pattern in it that I don’t want to knit but if I had to choose I’d love to try the WestEnd cardigan – it would be the perfect wardrobe staple … I also particularly love the knitted kerchief too!”

What’s in the WIP:

I finished my Vintage Fairy Light Socks in Circus Tonic Yarn!

I’ve been designing a brand new sock design which I’ll be able to release very soon!
