In Episode 31 I share a couple of big projects that have been keeping me busy: a winter coat and a job in the garden. I also talk about a handful of in-between makes, from ones relying on tried and tested patterns, materials and techniques to a new kind of tool making.

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. 

You can find me as Mrs_M_Curiosity_Cabinet on Instagram. I am also still on Ravelry as Meg-aka-Mrs-M but not particularly active there.
