CH 216: Destashing and falling in love with Like a Cloud by Joji


On today’s show I’m chatting about my continued decluttering and destashing adventure, and my plans to clear a spot where some dedicated sewing can happen! I’ve also got more details on the Maker’s Market in Bath, and the prize for our Impressionists MKAL. I’m also getting excited about the upcoming new Joji Locatelli pattern, the Like a Cloud Cardigan, which she has generously designed for our retreat, and which will be available to purchase very soon.

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


Maker’s Market, Bath

We are having a Maker’s Market as part of the Curious Handmade Bath Retreat, and you’re all invited! Joji Locatelli will be signing copies of her Interpretations book, A Yarn Story will be bringing some beautiful Shibui yarn stock, and individual makers will bring their own gorgeous creations to sell as well, including kits, project bags, hand-dyed yarn, and lovely accessories. We’ll be serving tea and coffee and it will be a nice time to get together and enjoy the company of other knitters, stitchers, and makers.

Location: Bailbrook House Hotel, Bath, UK
Date: Wednesday, 9th of May from 3 to 5pm

£5 Entry. You can purchase a ticket on the door (cash only) or in advance from this link!

The last clue of the Impressionist MKAL was released last Saturday and the FO thread is starting to fill up with lovely lovely shawls by talented knitters. (Beware of spoilers!) You can finish up and post your shawl in the thread any time between now and the end of May to be in for a chance to win a wonderful prize. Many knitters have easily knit each clue in a week, so if you haven’t joined and want to hop in now, you still have time!

The final reveal of the complete Impressionists Shawl is on Tuesday May 8th and you won’t need to worry about spoiler alerts on Instagram anymore.
