Episode 89: Gap Year

As 2018 and our year of Yarn Adventures is drawing to a close, we take the time to catch up and chat about what is coming next for Yarn in the City!

What we’re working on

Allison has abandoned pretty much everything she was working on pre-Yarnporium (including doing the sleeves for Weekender) and has been knitting the Clara dess from Isager (designer is Karin Vestergaard Mathiesen).

Rachel finished her Carbeth (again!) after realising she should have knit it the next size up. Happily the sleeves didn’t need to be reknit! The leftover yarn is going to become a hat for Lindsey. Rach is also occasionally spindling some fibre here and there.

As with last year the podcast will be taking a brief hiatus until about March. Not least because of all of the prep involved with Yarnporium but mostly because of the exciting adventure that Rachel and her family have embarked on for the year, travelling to far-flung places! We catch up on Rachel’s first leg of the journey and chat about what this means for Yarn in the City.
