The Podcasts

Hello and welcome to the AWARD WINNING Shinybees podcast. That's right, we won 'Most Engaged Audience' at New Media Europe, which means you're officially an award winning audience!

This week there's a big thank you, as you'd expect, along with my top three take-aways from the New Media Europe conference. In short: be yourself, community is key and embrace failure. If you aren't failing, you aren't learning.

There's some Socktober news for you from the UK Sock Knitters group on Ravelry and BritYarn's GBSocksAwayKAL.

I review Blacker Yarns' latest spin, Cornish Tin, a 10th birthday, one-off yarn, developed from ten all-british suppliers and available in one neutral and four dyed shades.

Finally there's a sneak peek at what's coming in the next few weeks and months.
