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.

Frankly, this episode is mostly bloopers, but don’t let that put you off! I also chat about my latest pattern, Iara Shawl, review some lovely yarn from John Arbon Textiles, announce an Instagram giveaway and ask what type of design you would like to see next???
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.

This episode I had the pleasure of chatting with Olga Buraya-Kefelian about her knitting journey. There is also a little tutorial at the end of the episode for the i-cord cast on I used in the Lakelet shawl.

How is your knitting season going? I hear that mid-January is considered the most depressing time of the year. Do you find that to be the case? For me, once I have had a tiny tantrum about Christmas being over, really over, I get excited about the New Year and new resolutions and plans and fresh starts, etc. I had the launch of my Craftsy machine knitting class to keep me on my toes, and the pleasure of seeing the latest publication from the Edinburgh Yarn Fest ladies, so I didn’t feel the blues.
You may have seen the previews for Wool Tribe 2017 are up and the magazine is available for pre-order now!
