Podcast 10: Bag talk (mostly), including the Bagalong

The last episode of the podcast was all about blocking, so I didn’t get much of a chance to talk about the projects I’ve been doing. This podcast episode is therefore following fast on its heels as I have updates about my projects and particularly news about the Bagalong. Read more about the bagalong here…

Podcasting news

I won’t be doing a podcast next week as I’ve quite a few things to catch up on and I want to try out my new equipment for doing tutorials. I might repackage the tutorial section in this podcast to form a separate video and I may be back with a couple of either tutorials or podcast shorties – I’ll see how it goes. Otherwise, I’ll be back with Episode 11 towards the middle of June.

Giveaway winners for the prizes on offer in Episode 8

The lovely yarn by Amy of Stranded Dyeworks was won by Mia Russell and the yarn ball earrings was won by 24CaratCrochet. I’ve heard back from both and the goodies will be posted out this Friday.

The giveaways from Episode 9 and Episode 10

  • 9: The stylish and very practical rust-resistant blocking pins from Knit it, Hook it, Craft it and the handy pin magnet.
  • 10: Super socks, the book by Christine Perry on knitting your first socks

Spanish lace pins 2

The winners of these two prizes will be chosen from YouTube subscribers on Thursday 9 June and announced on my blog and in the next podcast.

    Hello Kathryn I am really enjoying your podcasts. I have knitted mainly baby jackets over the years but socks have remained a complete mystery to me and I have lost count of the failed attempts but I would so love to complete one pair in my life! Crochet also has bypassed me as, for some reason, I cannot follow a crochet pattern but am hopeful your tutorials will help me overcome this hurdle. I love catching up with you Kathryn and find your style and approach so entertaining and informative. A huge thank you – have a great weekend.

    Kindest regards

    I love your podcasts and I wait eagerly for them! Your production values are amazing. To be honest it all looks so polished that it is like watching a tv show (a v friendly and genuine one). You are so informative and chatty that whatever you are doing or saying, it’s always very interesting. I liked watched your excellent tutorial – I don’t actually need it but it was still fun to watch, and it was all ultra clear.

    You are a natural teacher as you know what to include, as well as what questions people might have and then you show it all really clearly and patiently with good explanations. Never remotely bossy either, just very helpful. Whatever your Amazon purchase was to help you do it, it worked as it was excellent!

    Thank you so much for the time and effort you are putting in to these podcasts. I so enjoy your work 🙂 Your shawls are both lovely and look very nice as modelled by you. Love the colours of the knitted socks, I might have to see if I can get it.
