CH 38: Getting Tangled

Curious Handmade Podcast Episode 38

I’m travelling in Australia and visit Tangled Yarns in Brisbane and am still hosting several fun knit alongs.

Thank you to my show sponsor:

Juno Fibre Arts is an artisan yarn and fibre company producing a unique hand dyed collection of yarns and spinning fibres for handknits, spinning, felting and weaving. The Juno studio is located in the grounds of an old, working farm in rural Devon, surrounded by British countryside and the range draws inspiration from its stunning pastoral setting.

Juno yarn is dyed in small and exclusive batches and is available in limited editions on the Juno Arts Etsy shop so look out for the monthly shop updates towards the end of each month.

Global Nomad

I’m reporting from the Sunshine Coast in Australia this week.

I visit Tangled Yarns in Brisbane and meet some lovely friends Julia 9Crafty11 and Deanne Mrs Ramjet who is a crochet designer.

I love Deanne’s Blosem crochet blanket pattern.

I bought some gorgeous beads and stitch markers! So cute!!
