Episode 55: Miara and Woollinn

 

Hello!

I was beset by technical gremlins today, but have finally managed to upload the podcast!

I chat about my new design Miara Sweater and the Woollinn Festival of Yarn, as well as demonstrate removing the neck from a top-down sweater.

Hello!

In the latest podcast, I show you not one, but 2 tutorials (cabling without a cable needle and reinforcing the back neck of my cardigan with a crocheted chain), talk about upcoming plans and show off a few outfits.

EastLondonKnit podcast Episode 51: Nancy Marchant

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.

Hello!

Hello!

This episode I chat about my new pattern, Allium, as well as my weekend at Edinburgh Yarn Fest. I started off pretty strong, but then the weekend’s excitement seemed to catch up with me half way through!

Episode 45: Carol Feller and Miara Hat

Miara Hat knitting pattern by Renee Callahan

A little holiday gift for you! Subscribers to the EastLondonKnit Newsletter will get a 20% discount on the pattern until Jan 3rd!

The MIARA HAT is a great pattern for that last minute gift, with 2 options for yarn weight: worsted and sport weight, and 2 sizes in each yarn. The hat can be knit with 2 or more colours, and is a perfect use for those mini skeins, which can be held double or knit at a looser gauge. The pattern features slipped sts and is easily memorised.

You can see all the details about the pattern and buy it here!

Happy knitting,

Episode 44: Kate Atherley

Hello!

How’s it going? Is your Christmas knitting in full flow? I can hardly believe tomorrow is December already! If you were looking for a little podcast to watch while you knit, I have something for you. I caught up with Kate Atherley at Yarnporium and we chatted about learning and her new book, among many other things. I hope you enjoy it!

Episode 35: Brioche on the Beach

Hello!

A new, rather petite, podcast is out today!

In this little shorty episode, I chat about my new pattern: Brioche on the Beach and then mostly complain about the heat!

And because it is a new pattern,  subscribers to the EastLondonKnit newsletter get a discount code for 20% off Brioche on the Beach until until 27th August 2018!
Extra bonus prize for early birds: When you purchase the pattern, you will get a discount code for Retrosaria Mondim yarn until 16th August 2018!!

Big enough to keep you warm on the beach after the sun has gone down, and light enough to fit into your carry-on luggage, this wrap is a perfect accompaniment to a week in the Azores, or anywhere you would like to curl up under a mass of beautiful, warm and squishy knitting.

For those familiar with brioche knitting, Brioche on the Beach will be a straightforward project, easily adjusted to any yarn. For beginners to brioche, the project will be more challenging, but is definitely doable! I have created a few video tutorials to provide a little extra support.

 

Happy knitting!
