CH 236: Knit City Vancouver recap (and haul!)

I have a big juicy episode for you today, all about the amazing time I had in Vancouver at Knit City. I got to spend lots of quality time with some fabulous knitting friends and gathered a lot of lovely knitting treasures at the incredible market place. I should probably but a big enabling warning on today’s podcast, because the many glorious vendors I mention are totally irresistible. I also have a bit of news about my most recent patterns and the upcoming Knitvent season (and the last pattern of The Shawl Society Season III…!)

Show Sponsors:

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
