Episode 1: Greetings & Salutations

In which we babble on and admit we have no idea what we're doing.... as evidenced by the sound mix. Our apologies that some of the levels are off. We're aware of this next time and have fixed as much as we can in post. We'll do better next time - we promise!

An interview with Glenna C, who can be found at crazyknittinglady.wordpress.com. You can find her designs on her Ravelry designer page here.

On and off the needles and wheel:

Rachel is working on the Marie Curie Mittens by Emily Bujold, and is dreaming about Kate Heppell's Insight and Overlynd by Melissa Schaschwary. She is spinning some Targhee from Spunky Eclectic in "Bunny Kisses", and some merino/silk for Alli's last year's Christmas present.

Rachel's latest published pattern: Bonfire Night

Off the needles Rachel has wrapped up the Tiny Tea Leaves Cardigan by Melissa LeBarre x 2, Sitka Spruce Hat in Porpoise Fur handspun, and two designs: Bonfire Night and some handspun fingerless mitts coming out in Ennea Collective at the end of the month.

Allison is knitting the Mitini Mitts by Colleen Powley. She's also working on Robin by Lina Olofsson for her brother for Christmas. Spinning-wise not a lot is happening at the moment but she recently finished 2 x 100g braids of SweetGeorgia Yarns panda fibre in "Midnight Garden" that resulted in 570 yards of a 2-ply DK weight yarn - likely destined to be a vest.

Special feature:

YitC Road Trip to Bath, stopping at A Yarn Story and The Shed, before hitting the Bath Christmas Market, Country Threads and Wool. More details on our Events page. Tickets are £28, and can be found here.
