Episode 54: A Brief Guide To Hoxton

This week join me for a day out in my neighbourhood! Plus we roam through the wonders of the Feed The Sheep thread on Ravelry, there’s a new (to me) online knitting magazine, an update on the Sweater of Doom, and three patterns committing crimes against knitting.

No podcast next weekend as I’ll be away at the Greenman music festival in Wales – sorry! However, this week’s show is extra-long to make up for it, and I’ll be back the following weekend.

Spitalfields Market, Prick Your Finger, Fabrications, Albion, Geffrye Museum, The Book Club, Commercial Tavern, Callooh Callay

    Such fun, thank you, Katie.
    And I think it’s fabulous to be mentioned on the front page of Ravelry … those silly non-knitters just don’t understand …

    ps Especially enjoyed the Amanda Soule interview in Knit Circus
    pps Now have a “must-not-knit list” including of course the horrid banana poo hat, as a silly contrast to my Ravelry queue, it’s perfect I don’t even have to buy any wool for them …

    Crimes against knitting must become a regular feature! Someone HAS to be bold and tell the truth. Imagine some poor souls really going outside of the home in any of these things! I picture the Sheep as a sort of knitting superhero, the woolly crusader against bad knitting. Truly, it’s a public service.

    Can you tell me again who makes the tea cozies? I was spinning while listening and did not write down the name. Thanks! Oh-love the crimes against knitting. There are so many out there right now since everyone thinks he/she is a designer. And jelly is actually jam without the fruit bits. You cook the fruit to juice, strain out the fruit mash, add pectin, and voila! jelly. You were thinking of jello, a gelatin mess that one makes with molds. I actually use last bits of jelly to make cookies like the ones in the article. Not necessarily peanut butter, but I might try their recipe. It’s a great way to use up old and stale jelly that is languishing in the bottom of the jar.

    I was listening at work and couldn’t wait to get home to look up the knitting crimes. Your descriptions were great but what a laugh to see the photos. Love your podcast.
