CH 239: London Lines, Dust of Snow, & Knitvent Giveaway Winners

Knitvent is underway! I’m thrilled to finally have the first pattern out, but that’s not all I have to share with your on today’s episode of the podcast. I also have another pattern which has just launched in the fabulous new Mini Yarn Guide London, an exciting collab with some wonderful ladies, and our Knitvent Giveaway winners to announce!

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

Knitvent Giveaway Winners!

Grand Prize Winner:

“My most peace filled memories are when we would drive to church for Christmas service. It was a bit of a drive, and my father would lead us in Christmas carols the whole way there in his beautiful bass voice with my mother’s clear soprano accompanying. By the time we arrived, we were always filled with the holiday spirit!! I can still remember their lovely voices singing both the silly and the solemn carols even thought they are both many years gone.”
