This week, Kathy is talking with Hannah Thiessen, a first-time author who has written a beautiful new book: Slow Knitting: A Journey From Sheep to Skein to Stitch.  If you’re interested in the slow fashion movement, or want to slow down and take a more meditative look at knitting – this is the book for you! Maybe you’re a production knitter who would like to slow down, or a process knitter who often feels pressured to hurry through a project (guilty!).  Hannah has thoughtfully pieced together gorgeous patterns and ideas to make your knitting experience more conscientious, enjoyable and guilt-free.

    This audio file is the interview with Vickie Howell. I enjoyed that one a few weeks ago. Would love to hear Hannah Thiessen’s interview as well, when it’s available! These podcasts are great for middle-of-the-night feeding sessions with the baby.
