Episode 5 - With Emily + Alexa of Tin Can Knits

Hello pomcast friends!

It is now officially Autumn here in London, and we are getting down to some serious crafty stuff, ready for the colder weather. We have another instalment of our knit-chat (also known as 'podcast') for your ears. Be sure to download the Soundcloud app if you want to listen on a mobile device, or if you subscribe to the Pomcast on iTunes it should appear on your device now! Hooray!

We also have a bonus for you, our interviewees for this podcast have given us some super great prizes to give away! Yes that's right - the wonderful Tin Can Knits ladies are giving you the chance to win a signed copy of their new collection - Road Trip - AND a sweater quantity of Rainbow Heirloom yarn in a colour of your choice. So comment on this post by the end of Sunday 5 October telling us your favourite item from their new collection to be in with a chance to win. Extra points if you tweet, share on Facebook or Instragram! Just let us know that you did in a separate comment. This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Rachel, who's won this amazing prize!

And of course don't forget to check out our brilliant sponsors Milla Mia. We think their sport weight would be perfect for Selsey, and now they have an aran weight too!
