Hi everyone!

I had the pleasure of speaking to Sarah from Sew Love and hearing all about her fabulous mission and her adventures this summer in Cecil the mobile sewing lounge. 

You can find Sarah on her 

website // facebook // instagram // at your local beach :)

Sarah mentioned Nicky Harre and her book 

Psychology for a Better World: Strategies to Inspire Sustainability

I also mentioned:

  • Sign up to my free monthly mini-mag to hear about future sewalongs and knitalongs
  • I'm off to the Unwind yarn retreat - yay!

Happy knitting folks!

Truly Myrtle Podcast - Episode 19: With Cate from Infinite Twist

Welcome to the fifth interview in the "Our Wardrobe Stories" series.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Cate from Infinite Twist this week and I hope you find her stories as fascinating as I did.

I've designed a wrap for an Infinite Twist kit - the Lyza wrap. It's available now and you can find all the details on the Infinite Twist website.

Since I last chatted to you we've started the Washi Dress sew-along. Are you joining in? You can catch up with the sew-along on InstagramFacebook or the Truly Myrtle Ravelry Group.

Maximus hat was my first pattern for guys - although it's great on gals too :) I'm enjoying watching all your Maximus hats come to life - you can find the pattern in my Ravelry store.

Thanks for listening!

My fabulous theme tune is "Casting On" by the talented New Zealand band Mr Roberelli. I think you'd love all their songs - perfect for kids and adults alike.
