Episode 122 - Festive, with air quotes

Full shownotes are at www.knitbritish.net/ep122 I chat about the importance of self-care at this time of year and have a hug of solidarity for those who don't enjoy this time of year. (Any use of "festive" is used with air quotes!) Our Welsh Mountain Wool Exploration is split across this episode as, whooo, theres a lot of great info to learn and lots of great exploration. There is also chat about the Tin Can Knits-along ad the Small Gestures Swap. This is the last show of the year - I'm thankful for all your support and enthusiasm for WoolWork (nee KnitBritish). I look forward to what 2020 will bring us! I end with festive song from Snowy O McSnowerson (and guest sheep!) and listen out for a few expletives at the end, in the outtakes! Thanks for listening. #LoveLocalWool

Episode 119 - What's in a name?

Visit the website to see the full shownotes for this episode - http://www.knitbritish.net/ep119 This is the last podcast until October so that I can take my annual pod-break and it is a pretty bumper episode! There is a wee bit about my trip to woolness; our castilemilk moorit wool exploration and some news about WoolWork. When the podcast comes back in October it will have a new name - WoolWork. This is something that I’ve thought long and hard about. When you’ve listened, I hope you will feel it speaks more about the kind of things that are important and central to the podcast and to me. I’m a different crafter and person since I did that initial 1 year blog challenge to knit with only British wool and while I feel reverence toward everything that meant and means, I feel the podcast title ought to speak to other levels. Same host - same content - same wool explorations - same love local wool - just a new title! All links are with the shownotes at the website. Enjoy the rest of the summer and we'll meet back here in October when it is sweater kniting weather! Marked Explicit as there are a couple of effs near the end of the episode.

Episode 113 - safe space

Full show notes for episode 113 are at www.knitbritish.net This episode I had planned to look back at 2018 and plan for 2019, but we need to start as we mean to go on, so I start by talking about the conversations going on about race and inclusivity in the knitting community. Nutshell - I want to make KB a trusted and safe space for all listeners and support all yarnies - regardless of where you come from, who you love, what you look like or the colour of your skin. I am sorry if you have ever felt that I excluded from this community or that KB was not for you and I will do what I can to learn and to change. Also in this episode we have Shetland Wool Exploration, Fieldwork Make-Along, Good Intentions Knitting Club, Edinburgh Yarn Fest and More! #lovelocalwool I'm not marking this explicit, but I do say a work that means the 3rd person present of urinating, in relation to being very annoyed. There are no F bombs.
