The eastlondonknit podcast about my year of knitting

Episode 65: my year in knit

Welcome to the final podcast of 2019! What a year it has been! I am very much looking forward to the start of a new shiny year, but I always find it helpful to spend a few minutes looking back, if only to reassure myself that I did actually finish some projects and publish some patterns in the last year!

I hope you are enjoying some quality stitching time, and I will see you in the New Year.

Happy knitting,

Episode 62: Sonya and Barcelona

Hello!

In the latest episode of the EastLondonKnit podcast, I chat about my visit to the Barcelona Knits festival, as well as plans for more wool-based outings, around London and beyond!

You can find show notes are in the EastLondonKnit Ravelry group.

Happy knitting,

Rx

Episode 61: Baby Angelus

Hello!

The latest episode of the podcast is up and I am showing off the sweetest of little cardigans with my newest pattern Baby Angelus. Gah, I wish I always had such an adorable knitwear model available! I also chat about the Knit Tea retreat, making plans for an Italian adventure in the summer, and Q for you: can one stay cosy all winter with just knitwear and a raincoat…?

Til next time, happy knitting, Rx

A Romanian Retreat

Hello!

November is flying by! You know that thing, where you are waiting for a bus forever and then 3 come at once? I feel like that is my knitting life right now and after a slow start I now have ALL the projects on the go, including several hand knit designs and a very special machine knitting project with Craftsy (!) that I am dying to tell you more about, but it will have to wait.

Last month I had an amazing opportunity. Natasha of Taking a Moment in Time invited me to join a retreat in Romania as a knitting tutor. I jumped at the chance and it was a superlative trip. Words don’t really do it justice, so I will just show you a small part of what made the trip so special.

My photos in no way do justice to the beauty of the experience. Many thanks to Natasha for the invitation and for organising such a wonderful week.

In addition to other exciting things, I am looking forward to sharing a new sweater pattern, designed for  Natasha’s gorgeous new Hill Farm Yarn at the end of the year.

Happy knitting,

Renée
