Yarn in the City
Summary: In the Yarn in the City podcast, Allison and Rachel talk about knitting, spinning, and various fibre-related events and things happening in London and the rest of the UK. Sections include: News and Events, On and Off the Needles and Wheel, Knitting Randoms, and Special Features.
On this episode Allison has finally enabled Rachel into the world of machine knitting. We are both highly intimidated but still jumping in with both feet in the hopes of reducing some of our stash and learning a new skill!
We sit down with the Queen of Brioche, Nancy Marchant at EYF to chat about her new book Tuck Stitches: Sophistication in Handknitting and learn more about Nancy's fascination with texture and stitch patterns.
Our special guest on this episode of the podcast is Lisa Sisk, owner of Dublin's LYS This is Knit, and organiser of new yarn show Woollin Dublin debuting May 25th. We also have a giveaway for a pair of tickets to the show!
It's our EYF2018 wrap up episode with all our news from the Edinburgh Yarn Festival. We also chat with the lovely Gina Ross from Natural Yarns and review the new Jacob yarn from Blacker Yarns.
