Episode 76 – Sylvia Watts-Cherry

Hi Pomcats! This episode we’re having a chat with intarsia maven Sylvia Watts-Cherry!

This episode is sponsored by Yorkshire Yarn Fest. Since 2019, they have brought together crafters from all over the world with their virtual festivals which take place live on Instagram. You can also join Yorkshire Yarn Fest for their third in-person event this month (May 2022)! A celebration of all things yarn, wool, and fibre, their next event will be on the 28th May, so do check out yorkshireyarnfest.com for a list of exhibitors. And great news for Pomcast listeners - Yorkshire Yarn Fest are offering you a FREE ticket! Just use the code POMCAST when ordering your ticket.

You’ll know Sylvia's bold and exciting designs from past issues of Pom Pom, such as Fata Morgana published in Issue 30 and Tortoiseshell from Issue 34 (pictured at the foot of this post)! And now you’ll get to know her latest design, Paragon, which graces one side of our super bumper double cover Anniversary Issue! We loved having a chat with Sylvia and learning all about her knitting life and inspirations, the importance of reflecting her African heritage in her designs, and all about Paragon (pictured above)!

This is the fabric Sylvia references at about 35 mins into the episode!
