This episode we’re slowly psyching ourselves up to feeling festive- but not quite though, don’t panic!
We kick things off with some Samuel Smith’s Winter Ale (check out that retro-looking label!) before delving into our knitting. Pip has been clearing her needles like nobody’s business, and Cia’s made a start on her Christmas gifts.
Our BUDSKAL is in full swing and we’re starting to see some finished objects appear in our Ravelry forum. To enter, join us over there, and don’t forget to share your KAL wips on social media with the tag #BUDSKAL. We’ve some lovely prizes up for grabs!
We’re excitable as ever (these things rarely change in Tipsy Towers!) and share a few things we’re looking forward to over the next few weeks. Karie Westermann’s fantastic first book, This Thing of Paper, is making its way to Kickstarter backers and we can’t wait to get our paws on our own copies. Previews of the patterns are on Ravelry and Karie’s website and they’re absolutely stunning. If you’re in Scotland, there will be a launch party on November 30th at Kathy’s Knits you can also look forward to!
On Saturday 9th December, we’ll be heading to Queen of Purls for the annual Warm & Working event held for the local Big Issue vendors. There’ll be guests including podcast faves Rusty Ferret and Ginger Twist, not to mention mulled goodies and more. See you there?
Edinburgh Yarn Festival have released the vendor list for 2018– and what a treat it is! We have a look and indulge in some customary oohs and ahhs. Who are you excited to see?
A few weeks ago, there was quite a response online to images of the Hygge sweater by Verena Cohrs and comments regarding the model’s facial expressions in particular. Naturally we both have feelings about this, and we share them this episode.
We’ll be back in December with our final episode of 2017. In the meantime, happy listening, and don’t forget to come say hello and join in the KAL over in our Ravelry group!
