Episode 1: Clare Devine and Double Yarn Overs.


Well, the pilot episode when so well, I thought I may as well have another go!

This time I catch up with Clare Devine at Edinburgh Yarn Festival for a little interview about her latest projects, I chat about my current knitting and do a little tutorial about working double yarn overs. You can find show notes in the thread for Episode 1 in the EastLondonKnit Ravelry group.

There is a great giveaway from Clare for this episode, so please do have a view of the podcast if you would like a chance to win!

My brain seems entirely taken up on working on my new collection and the podcast. I keep sitting down to write a blog post and there is a yawning gap where my inspiration used to be. Maybe I should be concerned about it, but admittedly, I’m not.

This is how I see it: either, there is only so many creative words in me at any given time and I have used up my allowance at the moment, or I am percolating on some future words and themes (in an apparently unconscious way, HA!). Either way, it always seem like if I don’t have anything interesting to say, not to say anything at all.

So I think I will post about interesting things when they happen: I publish a pattern, or a podcast or have a sale or finish something. What do you think?

Happy knitting,
