I’m just popping in to tell you about a video podcast put together by my friend Linda of The Slow Wardrobe (formerly Tall Yarns ‘n Tales). As long-term readers may know, I am a HUGE fan of the wonderful workwear produced by Linda and Andrea. I often use their Layercake range of pinnies, smocks and tabards when styling KNITSONIK stranded colourwork handknits and I love the flexible and accommodating shapes they use. Some years ago I interviewed Linda and Andrea for the KNITSONIK podcast. Linda has just launched a video podcast for The Slow Wardrobe and this time it was my turn to be interviewed. We met up last Friday to talk about colours, creativity, gradients, what we’re knitting now and some of the ways in which we like to pair sewn garments with handknits. We talk for a while before launching into a joyous dressing up session involving ALL THE LAYERCAKE and ALL THE HANDKNITS. If you want to join us in this fun for an hour or so, you can do so via the video below.
When I first launched the KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook four years ago, Linda generously invited me to join her on her stand at Harrogate at the Knitting & Stitching Show. Tomorrow I’m joining Linda again at the wonderful Yarnporium event organised by Yarn In The City. Linda has copies of all my books on her stand and I’ll be there from around midday. If you’re coming too, please do stop by to say hello.
I’ll be there wearing Layercake and Polkamania!
See you there?
YOURS IN ALL THE LAYERCAKE,
