Insubordiknit yarn curtain – originally uploaded by insubordiknit

towards the beginning of last year, it seemed there was a huge increase in knitting-related podcasts. i haven’t been following them recently, but my very favourite is insubordiknit podcast. filled with stories from knitters’ lives, the inspiration behind some of jacey’s amazing handspun yarn and hip-hop breakdowns of what’s on the knitting sticks, the podcast is as awesome as everything else jacey does. the picture attached to this post is a “beaded” yarn curtain made from handspun yarn that you can buy from insubordiknit. more pictures of yarn curtains on flickr.

a couple of other honourable mentions that are of vegan knitting interest are:

irie knitsepisode 9: the vegan episode briefly explains what veganism is and how it relates to knitting, and talks about foxfibre organic cotton yarn and other vegan yarns (referencing my vegan yarn page!).

stash and burn – in episode 20: ltb or bust, nicole and jenny both knitted the same tank top with different brands of bamboo yarn, so they talk about the pattern (lotus blossom tank from interweave knits) and compare the yarn they used: plymouth royal bamboo and south west trading company bamboo.

what are your favourite knitting podcasts? are there any other vegan podcasts that have talked about knitting, or knitting podcasts that have talked about veganism?
