CH 4 : Knitting Design and Making Soap

Hello and welcome to Episode 4 of the Curious Handmade Podcast.

Today I’m talking about a charity knitting project, my knitting design process, making soap and some other bits and bobs.

Charity knitting project

I was knitting for this campaign at work yesterday:

The Big Issue are running a campaign called the big-knitathon to benefit homeless people in the UK.

Whats in the WIP

I share how I design my knitting patterns for you.

A new pattern I’m stalking (and have since purchased) is The Great Oddments Knitdown by Romi Hill
