Episode 7: Pom Pom Quarterly


This episode was a fun one! I was joined by Lydia and Sophie of PomPom Quarterly for chat about the upcoming celebration of PPQ’s 5 year anniversary. I also chat about my new design the Starflower Shawl. I hope you enjoy it!

The Muse Connection Vol. 2

Not only did I have a fibre-filled Saturday, but this Sunday I had the pleasure of joining A Playful Day‘s Kate and Curious Handmade‘s Helen at their Muse Connection event. This is the second (Volume 2, as they are calling it) of the events which are like a knit night with added goody bags, door prizes and inspirational talks.

It was wonderful to hear about creative beginnings from knitwear designer Rachel Coopey, (spoiler: keep calm and keep yarn in the boot, also, learn to love the startitis)…

We all enjoyed some beautiful meringues and possibly the tastiest brownies I have had this side of the Atlantic. The goody bags featured a beautiful shawl pattern from Pom Pom Quarterly, sock pattern from Rachel Coopey and a skein of Anzula, a super luxurious 4 ply yarn.

All in all an excellent weekend indeed….
