This episode features a chat with Meg Rodger of Birlinn Yarn Co. The name, Birlinn, comes from the short Viking boats that were used to navigate the islands around which Meg lives and crofts. She raises Hebridean sheep and is making devine yarn from their fleeces. Come listen to what life is like on the Outer Hebrideas! Thanks for listening!

Welcome to episode 64 where I discuss recent slip ups caused by basically not thinking and being a bit cavalier about my knitting. I have a realization that I might be becoming a bit of a product-knitter-monster, all this while I talk about my one Finished Object and several WIPS. There's a coop cast update, a prize announcement for reaching 1000 members on Ravelry (yay!) and of course a Woolly Thistle update. Thanks to lochnessknitfest.com for sponsoring this episode of NH Knits. Enjoy!
