Podcast Episode Seven: Shownotes


Hello! In the 7th episode of my podcast, Wool Is My Bread (which you can find here) I share my foray into crocheting with 100% hand-spun nettle yarn, show my slow and steady progress of my Hay sweater, and sing the praises of a new cast-on – a sock test knit for my lovely friend, Katherine. As always, please feel free to leave a comment if you have a burning question which goes unanswered in this post!

What’s Off My Needles

Pattern: Improvised – a basic square alternating between double crochet and single crochet through the back loop. Once the piece is as tall as it is wide, I chained for approx. 6cm, worked in single crochet stitches around the 4 sides of the square, then worked over the 6cm of chain stitches to finish the looped handle.

Yarn: 100% hand-spun nettle fibre bought from Wildflower Weaver from her studio space at Farfield Mill.
