Merry Knitmas Pomcats! This episode we're joined by our friend and ex-producer, the musical maverick that is Eli Block!

Come join us by the fire for a cosy chat!

We're looking to 2019 when we'll be at Unravel festival in Farnham, 22nd - 24th February. Get your tickets here and stay tuned for our knitting pub quiz plans! Thanks again Unravel for sponsoring this episode!

Emily Foden will be travelling around Canada with her Knits About Winter trunk show in January. You'll find her and the knits in Montreal at La Maison Tricotee on 3rd January (tickets here), and in Hamilton at Hand Knit Yarn on 24th January (tickets here).  Check the websites of each shop for the accompanying workshops Emily will be hosting over the corresponding weekends.


Who better to review a copy of our learn to knit book than a non-knitter? Eli casts his discerning eye over Knit How and provides his unique commentary on abbreviations and the knitting world.

If you're looking to convert a 'muggle' then you can find Knit How in the Pom Pom shop.


We look back on the 4 years of making the podcast, ah memories!
