Sticks & String

A podcast by an Australian bloke who knits.

Show 175 – News

Busy since the last show, but the first book is ready to go to its audience tomorrow as school goes back.

The Audible special offer is here.

The music this week is from Takashi Matsuishi Spark’s album Preludes from Magnatune.

Follow me on twitter, @reidyd, for various photos including the panoramas take with the 360 application on the iPhone.

The yarn I reviewed, Paton’s Country Tweed is a nice chunky blend, perfect for winter, but I can’t put a link in because it appears to have been discontinued (which explains why it was so cheap I suppose).

While I was in Canberra last week, I went to the Handwritten exhibition, and added some 360 panoramas to my collection.

A direct link to the show is here, so you can play it on your computer.

The book I reviewed, Extra Yarn, is really great and would make a perfect gift for a child.

Show 173 – Forced Labour

Three weeks since the last show, and I hope every one had a nice Christmas or whatever, and 2012 is off to a good start so far.

The music this week is from the allMeadow and Rob Costlow’s latest collaboration over on Magnatune.

The weather has been getting better and I’ve been able to get out bush walking most days, which means there have been lots of photos. Follow me on twitter, @reidyd, for various photos including the panoramas take with the 360 application on the iPhone.

This week’s reviewed yarn is Cleckheaton Country 8 ply.
