On the Hooks and Needles
I completed my Millicent by The Natural Dye Studio, although not before the Olympic flame was extinguished :(
Ravelry details are here. I also finished off a few Woolsack cushions (although I'm not sure it gets a mention in this episode!).
The Shinybees podcast. Give Jo a listen, it's great!
Here are some photos from the warping session.
Ready to go...
...starting to warp...
...sorting out some tension issues...
...threading the warps through the eyes...
Something I Really Like
Yarns from indie dyers such as BabyLongLegs, Easy Knits, Fyberspates, The Knitting Goddess, and The Natural Dye Studio which use common base yarns from...
...Bluefaced.com, who are having an open weekend Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August just outside Chester. Details here.
Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, available from Magnatune.
We have a listeners' map. Please go on over to pop in a pin - we're covering 5 continents now but I'd still love to see where you all are!
