Episode 19 of the Podcast – Lots of knits, quiet colourwork, cooking gnocchi and thoughts on making

This episode includes lots and lots of knitting projects – both finished ones and new cast-ons. I chat a bit about some yarn I've recently received from other dyers, and chat about colourwork knitting techniques. I also share how I make semolina gnocchi, and chat about creativity and making whilst preparing them.
