Midweek update – 18 April
Well, the Easter Show is over, and I’ve got some wonderful interviews about all sorts of fun stuff (2 hours unedited) for series 3.
I owe some big thank yous to lots of people. Firstly to Scout of Scout’s Swag for the Sticks & String colourway yarn. It’s red and yellow and orange and blue and it’s wonderful to work with. There’ll be much more detail in the coming shows, and a success in the bloke knitting bag search. Lee of Yarn Over Lounge sent me a care package with some yarns from around the world, some of her patterns and bits and pieces, and their wonderful, so thanks to Lee too.
Today I spent an hour at Belgrave Park Alpacas with Julia who’s visiting from Boston, I spent a little bit on some lovely 4-ply alpaca yarn from Jillian and her very friendly alpacas. It’s a wonderful farm run on biodynamic principles and with a huge area to run around in, the alpacas looked very happy and the crias were so cute. If you find yourself around the Blue Mountains, give Jillian a call and have a farm visit – she has fleece, yarn and wonderful finished garments, and you can visit the animals too.
Thanks also to everyone who has sent stories for the new series, there’s some wonderful stories which will make up parts of the shows. Planning is coming along, and the first show will be up on 5 May (not 3 May as I said in the last show, that’s a Thursday).
