The Podcasts

This week the show returns after a short hiatus. I'll give you a few funny tales from the past couple of months to get you in the mood for some Shiny On Form thought the episode. Pulling an octagenarian and gatecrashing a funeral are amongst the highlights.

In Enabler's Corner, I enable you to the Tiny Tea Hat collection, which is the mini version of the most popular hats from Clare Devine of Knit Share Love's Tea Collection. It contains Chai, Everyday Brew, Lapsang and Liquorice.

This is where it went off on one for the first time and I enlighten the world to the fact that the latest Hot Right Now craze for Ponytail Hats on Ravelry is in fact nothing to do with Facebook and everything to do with the Manbun.

After this, I review Woolly Wormhead's Painted Woolly Toppers for Kids. Edgy, fun, a little subversive plus impossibly cute kids and interesting hat construction = a winner for me. 

Shownotes for this episode can be found at, along with highly amusing photos of Vladimir Putin with a man bun.

Music is from Adam and the Walter Boys with 'I Need a Drink'.
