Project progress

Having put my mind to the finishalong, I’m surprised how much progress I’ve made in the time since I last podcasted. I talk about my continental knit socks, my scrappy mandala made from my hand dyed yarn and my ripple blanket.

Myths and tips

This is a new section that I’m just trying out to see what you all think… I’ll be exploding or exploring a common yarn, crochet or knitting related myth and then providing tips around a theme or a specific tip that I’ve found useful. In this episode I look at the myth that you should never use fabric or hair conditioner on wool and my tips are all about how to take better photographs for social media.

    Another fun episode, thank you Kathryn! Your idea for the finish along had me thinking about my basket of WIPs in a new light, and got me to finally join your Crafternoon Treats Raverly group… and hopefully get some things done, and meet new yarny friend while doing them! 🙂
