Episode 30 of the Podcast – Shawl knitting, British wool, foraged baskets, and rosemary cuttings

While it's still cold I'm really enjoying cosy knitting with both hand-spun yarn and my hand-dyed Mendip yarn. Join me as I chat about some shawls in heavier-weight yarn, supporting producers of British wool, a couple of recent baskets from foraged materials, and a super-simple way to make more rosemary plants.

I get a lot of my wool (both for my mill-spun Mendip yarns and a lot of the yarn I spin by hand for myself) from Fernhill Farm; they are wonderful. 

The blog post I wrote on spinning yarn from foraged wool.
