This week I’m talking about the freshest of fresh starts: a brand new baby! There seem to be a lot of babies on the way in the knitting podcast world, and I’m looking forward to a fresh new niece to knit for very soon. I give a rundown of some of my favourite patterns for baby gifts, and my own fantasy knitting queue for fresh babies.
Meadow Yarn is an inviting online retailer selling yarn, needles and notions. It’s a small, family business based in rural Suffolk in the UK.

Yarns stocked include Northbound Knitting, Eden Cottage Yarn, the Fibre Co and many more.
Blacker Yarns produce a diverse range of breed specific yarn for your knitting and crochet projects. With everything from Shetland and Blue-Faced Leicester through to Wensleydale, Gotland and Manx you’ll be sure to find an unexpected treat.

The Shawl Society Update:
Blacker Yarns is sponsoring the Mini KAL prize for Quill this month. They’ve given us a gorgeous skein of their brand new very limited edition St. Kilda Laceweight. I’ve topped it up with another skien, so this is a really special prize! Make sure you post a photo of your finished Quill to the FO Thread on Ravelry by October 2nd for your chance to win!
That’s everything for this week’s episode (it’s quite a lot!) I’ll talk to you next week. Until then, happy knitting!
