Shinybees in The Knitter Magazine

The Knitter Podcast

That’s right! The podcast was recommended in the latest issue of The Knitter. It was a pleasant surprise; I bought the magazine today to get my copy of the sock heel masterclass article by Clare Devine. I spotted the mention as I was flicking through the rest of the magazine, prior to sitting down for detailed reading.

Along with Clare’s brilliant article, there were some lovely sock patterns in this issue in a separate booklet. There is also a great article on visiting Shetland, which is on our to-do list for this summer, so should come in very handy.

If you would like a quick preview of what is in this issue, you can see it on the preview video on YouTube here.

Hello and welcome to the show notes for episode 12. This episode is all about Yarndale, a new Yarn festival held in Skipton in north Yorkshire in the UK. I was lucky enough to go along and met up with Nic from Yarns From The Plain podcast and Aimee from Knit Spin Cake podcast and we had a good old giggle and shopped till we dropped. Well, Nic did most of the shopping as you will hear shortly.

Intro

This episode is the first from my new base in Lincolnshire in the UK. There is a quick rundown of what I have been up to, including writing for the new iMake Magazine. There is also a Top Secret project in the pipeline. I attended Fibre East and met the rather wonderful Aimee from KnitSpinCake podcast. I will be attending Yarndale in Skipton at the end of September.
