The Podcasts

This week is a pacey canter through the usual format. The show is co-hosted by a barrel of fermenting beer. I'm not even joking.

Enablers' Corner returns where I encourage you to check out the map tapestry kits by Hannah Bass (

In news, there are a number of UK yarn shows coming up including Bristol Wool Fair (11-13 Sep), Yarndale (26-27 Sep) and Highland Wool and Textile Fair in Inverness on 17th Oct.

The Great London Yarn Crawl was a great show. Check out all the patterns by p-hop to get your knitting fix whilst doing your bit for charity by raising money for Medecins Sans Frontiers.

Top 3 favourites from the marketplace for me were: The Wool Kitchen, Travelknitter and Midwinter Yarns.

The pattern pick makes a dive-like return this week, with babies in moustaches and shell attire for pet tortoises, all around the theme of Super Mario.
