Knitting news

I’m nearing the end of the Print o’the Waves stole and hope to be able to post the finished article at the beginning of next week. In the mean time I thought I’d share some of the knitterly things I’ve been enjoying this week with you…

The first on my list is the CraftLit pod cast which I’ve been enjoying so much. I’ve been downloading it and listening on my MP3 player on the way to work every day this week. It is labelled as a ‘podcast for knitters who love books’ and every week after an intelligent discussion on craft (usually knitting) you get to listen to a couple of chapters of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. There are currently 15 Episodes of the pod cast up on the blog and I’m on episode 10. I love Austen’s books and it is very relaxing to listen to this on a baking hot train out of London.

The second item on my list is new blogs. I have to admit that recently I’ve been pretty busy and haven’t been reading too many blogs (other than those on my blogroll which I try to never miss!) But the other day I had a bit of a wander around some of the rings I belong to and found this blog - visit if you have time because Malgosia has some stunning finished projects on her site.

Third thing is the new Rowan magazine is out! I was so excited this morning, the first few pages left me feeling a bit nonplussed but the two later collections Kindred Spirit and Legend had so many items I would like to make! The magazine isn’t up on the website yet so I can’t post pictures but I’ll try and remember to do a review once I’ve had a better look at it. I can’t wait to hear what everyone else thinks of it.


This picture is apparently a map of my website(you can try it out for yourselves here ).

I really need to check out more of the knitting podcasts! Love the idea of listening to P&P after the 'cast :-)

I like the new Rowan book, spotted a number of things I'd like to make which is a better hit rate than the previous few books.

No Rowan book here yet :(

'Knitters who love books' is a lot of us I think :) I don't envy you that train ride in this heat.

So, when are you starting your second stole, then? Only joking, but I'm looking forward to the first one, I bet it's lovely.

Mmmmmm, Colin Firth. I saw him first in Bridget Jones' Diary and nobody could believe I'd missed the bit in P&P in the wet shirt (still haven't seen it). Sorry, I've gone off the subject a bit but I had to, seeing as you posted a picture of CF. Ohhhhhh yum!

Hooray for P&P! I have to say, I didnt' expect to like it too much but I do like the recent film version.

Craft Lit is one of my favourite podcasts - I save it for whenever I get a good hour or so free and sit and knit along to P&P, it's excellent!
