Shownotes for podcast episode 36

podcast episode shownotes


I asked a question on Instagram recently if people would prefer me to share things via a video podcast on YouTube or a written blog and the overwhelming majority was for a video.  I also had some really lovely messages left from people saying they missed my podcast which was so kind so I've decided to give podcasting a go again as I have been on a little break.

I thought the best thing would be to film and also write shownotes here so that if you aren't a huge video watcher you can still see what I've been up to.  I've tried to add lots of clickable links that will take you what I'm referring to.

Where to find me: I'm on Instagram and Facebook as 'thimble and thread make', over on Ravelry as thimble and thread and there is a group of the podcast on Ravelry but I think comments would be best left here or on YouTube as I would see them easier.

Wearing: My Pure Joy shawl which is a pattern by Jojo Locatelli  and knit using Hedgerow Yarns

Current (or soon to be!) WIPs: Green yarn, no pattern chosen yet but the yarn is from Riverknits in colourway Experimental

Ramona Cardigan which is to be knit with Debbie Bliss Falkland Aran Heathers in Chestnut 19 shade and 100% Wool and pattern is Ramona Cardigan over on Ravelry by Elizabeth Smith

Kobuk Hat which is to be knit using a kit from Deb at Down Sheepy Lane in the shades of Doe (DK weight) and Fawn (lace weight mohair blend) and using the Kobuk pattern on Ravelry by Caitlin Hunter

Finished things: Color Field shawl knit with Phileas Yarns in Wanderlust DK yarn (100% British BFL Lustre) in colours Palacio Real and Dalarna and using pattern by Kemper Wray on Ravelry 

Fingerless Gloves using yarn from London House Yarns in the colouway Grellow and pattern Palmistry DK by Stephanie LotvenProject bag was from Jooles at Sew Sweet Violet 

Destash yarns: All I have left is Debbie Bliss Paloma yarn, 8x 65m/71yds/50g and this is a blend of 60% Alpaca and 40% Wool.  I would like around £30 for it (including UK 2nd class postage) and this is around half of the RRP.

Other mentions: #getyouryarnwishgranted look this hashtag up on Instagram to see what wishes you can grant and then ask for one yourself.  I haven't asked for anything but have sent several things including a skein to a lovely lady from Lay Family Yarn

Shop News:  There will be several Knitters Carry All Backpacks going into the shop Wednesday 14th November at 7pm GMT/UK time.

Canvas Cube Bags can be found here
