Episode 22: A tangle of colour, disruption & spinning

Episode 22: A tangle of colour, disruption & spinning

November 26, 2020

As the past two months have not gone to plan, this podcast is a bit of a tangle of enquiry, tangents and rants. As I try to settle on the colours for a stranded colourwork waistcoat, I mull over possible connections between colour, brainwave activity and the human nervous system. I am also hacking or rather simplifying a go-to top pattern to turn it into a canvas for disruptive craft/art. Finally, as I spin yarn for cloth, I mull over what spinning is teaching me.

Episode 20: Musings from lockdown

Episode 20: Musings from lockdown

June 24, 2020

In this episode I revisit my Tonnach cardigan, talking about what blocked my progress and exploring my initial feelings about the finished garment. As operation "Restock my underwear drawer" has started but I'm too brain foggy to talk bra making yet, I share my knicker making efforts, and particularly how sewing your own smalls is actually an act of self-gentleness. Although I don't normally talk about acquisitions, I share a new fabric range that may be of interest. And I finish up with a kitchen experiment inspired by one of the shortages due to Covid-19 lockdown.

Episode 19: A mix of the familiar and the practical

April 28, 2020

Times are a bit strange at the moment but the making continues. In this episode I seek comfort in the familiar, albeit familiar with minor tweaks, but due to the nature of the times, I am also very focused on the practical: from fabric efficiency through waste avoidance to finally tackling some of those more mundane makes that I've been deferring as there were always more interesting, elegant projects to work on.

Despite all the upheaval and uncertainty, Covid-19 is causing my curiosity to buzz more than ever so I share some inspiring gems that have been getting my inquisitive juices flowing of late.
