    Episode 26: From head to toe

    In this latest episode I talk about a sock experiment with a twist and a couple of practical, needs-driven sewing projects. I also whip up a bathroom concoction, making use of some prunings from the garden in the process.

    Episode 25: Experimenting & mending

    In this episode I talk about my first experience of steeking and testing a woven knicker pattern to restock my undies drawer, not to mention delving into the origins and necessity of various elements of underwear design. I also share a recent simple but essential repair and include an announcement about Issue 2 of the Mrs M's Curiosity Cabinet pamphlet.

    Episode 22: A tangle of colour, disruption & spinning

    Episode 22: A tangle of colour, disruption & spinning

    As the past two months have not gone to plan, this podcast is a bit of a tangle of enquiry, tangents and rants. As I try to settle on the colours for a stranded colourwork waistcoat, I mull over possible connections between colour, brainwave activity and the human nervous system. I am also hacking or rather simplifying a go-to top pattern to turn it into a canvas for disruptive craft/art. Finally, as I spin yarn for cloth, I mull over what spinning is teaching me. 


    You can find me as Mrs_M_Curiosity_Cabinet on Instagram. I am also still on Ravelry as Meg-aka-Mrs-M but not particularly active there.

    Episode 21: Of creativity, swatching and preserving

    In this episode I talk about how my creative practice has taken a bizarre and slightly unexpected turn in recent weeks. I also share some swatching I've been doing for my next sweater knit and how I have been flexing my preserving muscles to capture the taste and colours of the season.

One of my favorites

I love this wonderful, peaceful, intelligent podcast. The strong focus on making (mostly knitting and sewing) with natural, sustainable, local materials is unique, and it’s a joy to listen to—great sound quality, and what a lovely voice! This podcast is like sitting down with a hot cup of coffee or tea, and chatting with an old friend. Thank you, Mrs M!!!

Easy listening and a wool lifestyle inspiration

This podcast is a pleasurable mix of connection time with the hostess and her projects, plus a not-at-all “preachy” discussion of very relevant topics. I love the sound of your voice and the polished way you assemble your topic discussions. Big fan!
