Knitorama Podcast – Episode 024

I’m back after not filming last week due to a bout of food poisoning, but I’m all better now.

Sorry for the lighting, the sun was shining into the living/dining room area and I couldn’t really do much about it.

Knitorama Podcast – Episode 023

Welcome to the latest episode of my knitting/crafting podcast. I talk a bit about all the wild fires that are currently devastating the Portuguese country side. It’s absolutely terrible and the strong winds this past week haven’t helped the situation at all, if anything, they’ve only made matters worse. Unfortunately these wild fires have already cost several people their lives not to mention the amount of property (land and homes) that have been burnt, and people’s lives that have been disrupted. Every year it seems to get worse, I hope that the people who set these fires get caught and that justice gets done.

Now onto the shownotes for today:

Skipping Stones & Waves Across the Ocean

At the beginning of July I had the great pleasure of testing two of Sally-Jane’s latest patterns. Sally-Jane created these two patterns in collaboration with her friend Clare Devine, who also created two patterns for the collection they’ve called Friendship Across the Ocean. The patterns are now live and you can get them as a collection or individually on Ravelry. So without further ado, here are the patterns I tested, and which I’ve posted about before but I only showed the yarn I used.
