    Ep 024: Why I disappeared for 6 months

    Ep 024: Why I disappeared for 6 months

    Hello lovelies,
    Welcome to Episode 24 of the Get Knit Done podcast, another back-in-the-saddle episode!
    I’m delighted to be back with you on the podcast.  In this episode, I talk about where I vanished off after June of last year including how I bit off way more than I could chew with the brioche cardigan and why, in the end, I have decided to completely change my business!
    I also talk about what is coming up on the podcast over the next few weeks now that I am back to regularly scheduled listening!
    It’s a bit of a rambling episode but do stay with me, I promise we will be back to knitting chat asap!
    In next week’s episode, I am going to go into more detail about why I’m closing the Loveliest Yarn Company and what it means for the podcast and Knit School!
    Take care lovelies, now go Get Knit Done!

    Ep 023: 8 Harsh Truths about Knitting Pattern Design

    Ep 023: 8 Harsh Truths about Knitting Pattern Design

    Hello lovelies, Welcome to Episode 23 of the Get Knit Done podcast.  As a pattern buyer and designer but also as someone who rambles through Knitting Twitter and other knitting communities on the internet, I think there are a few harsh (depending on your view of course and very kindly put I hope) truths that we need to talk about in relation to knitting pattern pricing and in this episode, I grasp that nettle!
    As always, if you don't agree with me, let's talk about it but let's be kind too!  Knitting is definitely not intended to be a combat sport!

    Following on from this, rather fittingly, I hope, I have a couple of episodes planned to talk about knitting pattern design!  I'll be talking about what I see as the three different aspects of knitting pattern design and how they relate to one another but how they all need different types of attention! 
    Take care lovelies,
    Michelle

    Ep 021: 10 Cardigans I'd cast on right now

    Hello lovelies, Welcome to Episode 21 of the Get Knit Done podcast. In this episode, I am talking about my choices for what I would like to be knitting at the moment if I could knit!  I narrowed it down to cardigans because, as it turns out, I didn’t really feel like anything else.  The episode takes a bit of a tour of my thought process in how I reached that conclusion and how I ended up choosing cardigans and then why I choose the 10 patterns that I did!  Visit the show notes here for links:

    Ep 020: 12 Tips for teaching new knitters

    Ep 020: 12 Tips for teaching new knitters

    Hello lovelies,
    Welcome to Episode 20 of the podcast.  This episode was originally going to be focused on what to do if you are learning to knit but evolved into what to do if you are teaching someone to knit!  There isn't a huge difference really - whether you are teaching someone or being taught so all of the points are relevant!
    I've divided the 12 tips into practicalities and, I guess, 'being human' tips : )
    List to the episode & visit the show notes for the full list:
    https://www.knitschool.co.uk/episode20
    Don’t let any of this put you off, you only need to be about 10% ahead of someone to show them how to do it! 
    People have been asking about when I will run Learn to Knit again.  Unfortunately I don't currently have a date for the live teaching of the course but I am hoping to have the class available to buy on it's own really soon! 
    Thank you so much for continuing to tune in.  Next week I'll be talking about what I'm planning to knit just as soon as my shoulder is back in action!

    Ep 019: 7 times the knitting 'trick' is not the best option!

    Ep 019: 7 times the knitting 'trick' is not the best option!

    Hello lovelies,
    Welcome to Episode 19 of the podcast.  I wasn't really sure what to call this episode and I nearly went with 'Sometimes it's hard' but this is the internet and things get misunderstood enough!  
    In this episode I talk about 7 (I think it kind of turned into 8!) times when a more difficult (at least in people's minds) option might be better than the easiest option!  I talk about the following:
    Why sometimes a seam is necessary Grafting versus a three-needle cast-off The weaving Stephen versus a slightly more involved method Russian joins versus weaving in your ends afterwards Why swatching is often better than not swatching Setting in a sleeve versus raglans Heel flaps are the best (don't @ me sock knitters, I am one of you!) Have a listen and let me know whether you disagree or not!  And remember, we can disagree on these,  none of them are life-changing, and still be friends.
    Thank you so much for continuing to tune in.  Next week I'll be talking about how to teach people to learn to knit (might be different to the episode trailer as I changed direction while recording the episode!).

Thanks for your get knit done podcast.

Michelle you have a lovely and calm voice. I enjoy listening to your non judgemental knitting advice. You are right we all knit for different reasons but we all have one thing in common we love the joy knitting brings. Please keep the podcasts coming we are listening! 🧶
