Have you heard of slow knitting?
Not the kind of slow knitting we might be familiar with – how slow it can sometimes be to finish a project. This is much deeper and it’s not just for knitters either! Slow knitting is a concept that was brand new to me before speaking to today’s guest, Hannah Thiessen. Hannah wrote the book on slow knitting and she’s here with us today to share what it’s all about and how we can get involved. In today’s episode…

- Slow knitting – what it is and why you might be interested in it.
- Best practices to follow the slow knitting movement.
- How to trace your wool or animal fiber yarn back to the source.
