Episode 6 of the Podcast – FOs galore, how I wasn't always good at knitting, and lichen dye

In this episode I'm showing some new warm-coloured yarns that have been added to the website, quite a few projects I finished over the festive break. There's a twist on the 10 Year Challenge that's been going around, which I hope will encourage beginner knitters! And I experiment with preparing dye from lichen.
