THE LOCAL SWAP
The “local” swap is underway! Have you had a message to tell you your partner’s address? If not, let me know. Check the Ravelry board for swap chatter and useful information about what foodstuffs & goods might be tricky to post into New Zealand.
INTERVIEW WITH MAREE FROM SKEINZ & DESIGN SPUN
It’s my pleasure to bring you a great interview with Maree from Design Spun & Skeinz. Maree has in marketing & product development for years and has her finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the New Zealand fibre industry.
I really enjoyed our conversation & I hope you do too. We talked about “local” yarn manufacture and sustainability, some of the gorgeous yarn coming out of both Skeinz & Design Spun and what’s happening in the knitting world downunder.
You can find all of Skeinz yarns here on their website and buy directly from the mill.
Design Spun also mill the yarn for:
White Gum Wool
Naturally – Waikiwi
Wish us luck at Ag day this weekend where the kids will be competing in the lamb events – leading and calling. I’ll report back!
As usual, my fantastic theme song is “Casting On” by Mr Roberelli
