Episode 2 of the Podcast

After a lot of lovely feedback from the inaugural episode , I'm so glad to have released the second episode of the Marina Skua Podcast!

In this episode I talk about the Mendip KAL (a knitalong I'm currently running), what happens when you mess up your knitting project through poor planning, how I spin art yarn from mohair fleece, and a quick look at making sloe gin.

If you enjoy the podcast and want to support it, consider buying me a coffee on Ko-fi.

The yarn for the KAL and which I'm using for the mittens is Marina Skua Mendip 4-Ply: https://marinaskua.com/collections/fi... I'm using the Zik Zak patern from Color & Knit Mittens by Aleks Byrd : http://www.aleks-byrd.com/colorknitmi...
