A DOWN UNDER DINNER CHAT!
This week on the podcast I'm excited to bring you a special dinner episode. I sat down to a delicious meal in Sydney with Clare Devine from Knit Share Love and Hannah Ginn from Circus Tonic Handmade and we chatted and chatted and chatted! about yarn, designing, dyeing yarn, the yarn scene down under and so much more ... and we recorded our conversation so you could join us!! I think you'll feel like you were right there at the table too :)
You can find Clare and her beautiful knitting patterns at Knit Share Love - we talk about her first garment design!! Do check it out. Kimmeridge is a scrummy aran-weight cardigan with a relaxed body and tailored fit that's perfect for cooler days and chilly nights. I really fancy one myself :) Clare has a discount on her pattern all weekend - use the code love20 for a 20% discount!
This is also Clare's 100th pattern!! And, to celebrate she's running an AMAZING giveaway - head over to her Ravelry group to enter!
Hannah is the very talented dyer behind the gorgeous brand Circus Tonic Handmade Yarn. My Skein Sisters shawl used Hannah's delicious merino singles and oh my goodness how the colours made my heart sing!! If you haven't tried Circus Tonic yet, do! I got to hear about lots of Hannah's exciting plans for her yarn ... definitely keep an eye on her. Brilliant things are afoot :)
It's that time of year again!! Time to try on all the shawls, squish all the yarn and make knitting friends! Come join me at Woolfest this weekend. The show starts at 10am and if you want some stunning yarn dyed by Spinning a Yarn, especially for my new Cloud Kisses shawl ... be there quick! Stock is limited!
