Rose Hip Knits Podcast- Episode 25

Hi,

It has been a hot couple of days here in northern Tasmania. Melting hot. Things are slowing down for the end of the year but also getting more busy with Christmas preparations and other fun stuff.

I didn't let the heat stop me from recording when I had the opportunity today. I always enjoy sharing my knitting, dyeing and other crafting with you so it was totally worth it! 

Things are a bit busy around here so there will not be links this time around. Please have a look in Ravelry for info about my projects and feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Hanna (RosehipChick on Ravelry and Instagram)

Rose Hip Knits podcast-Episode 24


I have been cleaning and organising and baking like crazy so when I sat down for a well deserved rest I thought I could invite you to join me. So Episode 24 is here early. :-)

Links to a couple of the things I talk about can be found below.

Thank you for watching!

Rose Hip Knits Podcast - Episode 23

There is a new Episode up on YouTube! Yay!

In this episode I talk about one finished knitted item, some knitting I am working on and some knitting that I would like to be working on. :-)

I have been dyeing a little bit and I show off some merino/nylon and some NZ Polwarth.

A talk a little bit about the experience of starting a shop on Etsy towards the end of the episode. A lot of my crafting time in the last couple of weeks has been spent on setting up my brand new Etsy shop. RoseHipIsland. Today I put my first listings up. It took a little while to get there.... It is very exciting and I have more to come. :-)

The undyedalong is going strong in our Ravelry group. You have until Jan 10, 2016 to enter so there is still plenty of time!

Links to some of the things I talked about in this episode can be found below. If you have any questions send me a message on Ravelry (where I am RosehipChick) or leave a comment.

Thank you for watching!

Rose Hip Knits Podcast Episode 22

Hi,

Thank you for stopping by! It is a beautiful weekend here in Tasmania and we are enjoying time off and being outside. We are getting close to the end of the school year and the girls are quite tired by the end of the week.

I recorded a new episode yesterday when I had a little bit of time to myself.  This time I talk about my knitting and all the yarn dyeing that I have been doing lately. I talk briefly about the #undyedalong that we have running Nov 1 until Jan 10 in the Ravelry group. Please come and join us there if you have not already done so.

I introduce you to my shop, Rose Hip Island, and talk about my new adventures on Etsy. The shop is empty at the moment but as you see in this episode I have plenty to list when I get everything organised. :-)

Links to some of the things I talk about can be found below. Remember that you can always post questions in the Ravelry group thread for this episode or send me a private message (I am RosehipChick on Ravelry and Instagram).
