Episode 36 Ama Knit It Again!

We’ve been very busy, but we’re squeezing in an episode just before the end of the month!

In Our Glasses

Tap water! We recorded rather early, one of us is pregnant and the other was too busy to source alcohol. Next month we (Cia) will be back to tipsy form for you.

Ama Sweater KAL

The KAL is in full swing and we’re loving seeing everyone’s projects! There’s still plenty of time to join the fun, and as a reminder:

  • Runs to August 31st, threads in Maddie Harvey and our Ravelry groups. FOs must go in the FO thread in Maddie’s group to qualify for prizes (TBC)
  • #amasweater, #amasweaterkal, #amasweaternoyoureasweater
  • Meet up at Perth! TBC but likely on Sunday 8th September

SPAM and things to look forward to…

Glasgow craft meet up 1st June organised by the fab Kirsty of Grianaig Creations.

  • 11am meetup at Botanic Garden
  • Coincides with Fibrepunk‘s trunk show at The Yarn Cake!

Aileen, AKA @thelittlebushbabymakes on Instagram has opened an Etsy store selling her gorgeous handmade beaded stitchmarkers and other goodies. She has some stunning bling for your knitting (stitchmarkers for your WIPS, shawl pins for those FOs!), and we urge you to go check her out!

Perth Festival of Yarn

It’s on the horizon! There are a few spaces left in some classes, but tickets are selling fast. Don’t forget to book your tickets for the marketplace and come join the fun! We’re counting down the days…

Next Episode & Hiatus

Next episode will be our final official episode before we go on hiatus over summer whilst one of us has a baby. We really appreciate your patience and support during this time. We’ll try and get some content out over the summer, but this is subject to our availability and how motherhood and Pip get on. With that in mind, next month we want to share some podcast love! We’ll chat our faves (and who you should go listen to whilst we’re gone!), but we’d love to hear who you all enjoy listening to as well. Let us know!

Baby News

As a final aside, Pip appreciates the respect she has received with regard to her pregnancy and personal boundaries. Her baby’s arrival is imminent, but both she and Cia would appreciate it if listeners do not contact Pip directly, or Cia as a go-around, asking if the wee one has arrived yet. We understand some of you may be excited- we certainly are! However, Pip will share on her personal social media when Skittle arrives, and Cia will obviously make sure those of you just following the podcast are alerted too- with Pip’s permission. Thank you for respecting this.
