Ch 161: Interpretations Vol. 4 by Joji Locatelli & Veera Välimäki

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 is an inviting online retailer selling yarn, needles and notions. It’s a small, family business based in rural Suffolk in the UK. 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!
