Welcome to episode 78 of the iMake podcast. Today’s episode celebrates Sunday. For me, it’s a day off work and a time for relaxing, crafting and getting outside. Forget the housework! There’s also a healthy dose of creative chatter as well as some events and knit, crochet and craft-alongs for you to get involved with.Read More
Welcome to episode 77 of the iMake Podcast. It’s Saturday 9 May 2015 - an extremely special day as it marks the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Guernsey after 5 long years of occupation by the German forces. Today’s show is not in the traditional format - it will feature extracts from previous episodes all about Guernsey. So why don’t you grab yourself a cup of nettle tea and a slice of potato peel pie and settle down to a special Guernsey episode of the iMake podcast.Read More
Welcome to episode 76 of the iMake podcast. It’s good to be back. It’s quite a yarny episode today but for non-yarny listeners you’ll also find, and hopefully enjoy, a little bird watching and some dog jewellery. I know it sounds odd, but it isn’t. Honestly.

Meet Penny - our new Cavachon puppy. She arrived on Tuesday this week and hubby and I are adjusting to having a small, dependent fluff ball in the house. It's all wonderful, but very tiring. I don't normally post very personal stuff on the blog, but I'll make an exception just this once (if anyone is interested of course!)Read More
Welcome to episode 73 - this show is not in the normal format. It's just me and Jen opening our Christmas presents (a bit late) and chatting about our recent creative activities. I hope you enjoy our random chatter!Read More
My love affair with Erika Knight's Fur Wool continues. This is how I used my final skein...
I combined a skein of Fur Wool with a skein of Maxi Wool (also by Erika Knight) and used this free pattern to create a pair of Furry Welly Boot Toppers. The colourway for both yarns is "storm" and they are a great match - the ribbed part in the photo above looks greener than the furry bit but that's just my photo. Both yarns are a lovely shade of grey.Read More
