We received so many fantastic questions, and we are just sorry we couldn’t include more! Thanks to everyone who got in touch, and who knows, perhaps we should make this a more regular episode feature? We’ll let you listen at your leisure to the secrets that we reveal in the episode, but we wanted to add to the show notes some of those special projects that were mentioned.

First up it’s Gayle’s ‘Rainbow Sherbet’ Delphinus from Issue 34, which uses some magical mohair by The Wandering Flock.

We also had Sofia’s Mafadi from Issue 31, this one is the project she enjoyed a mini friend KAL with! Here it's modelled by Noush, our UK Studio Manager.

Sophie mentioned her detailed Atlantica was a fav, while Gayle kept it simple with the James pullover from Knit How.

Belinda Johnson, our Publishing and Marketing Director, answers the question 'How do you make Pom Pom?' As part of her answer, she mentions our open call for submissions. Anyone can receive notification when we put a new call out by signing up to the mailing list. We also shout about it on social media, too! Here's Belinda's cat, Jonesy, who likes to oversee the proofs Belinda receives from the printers!
