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 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

Episode 51: Nancy Marchant Queen of Brioche

Hello!

I have a special episode of the podcast today with a knitting hero of mine: Nancy Marchant! I caught up with Nancy at Edinburgh Yarn Fest, and found a (relatively) quiet corner to record a little podcast with her about how she got into knitting, and the wonderful world of brioche stitch.

The full show notes can be found in the EastLondonKnit Ravelry group.

Episode 27: desert island yarn

Hello!

Spring is in the air here in London and I can’t help but feel a little more optimistic about, well, everything! In the 27th edition of the EastLondonKnit podcast, I make a decision about my Linus cardigan, have a go at a 10×10 challenge, and ask knit folk about desert island yarns.
