Podcast Show Notes

Kate joins me on the podcast to chat about her latest book Travel Knits for the Family – Into the Cold Vol1.  During our conversation, Kate chats about how she became a Knitwear designer from her background in Geology, how she chose yarn for these projects and how this book came together from concept through to the final publication.

The wonderful thing about listening to Kate is that you can tell how warm and caring she is as a designer and the level of thought that has been put into this collection is heartwarming. I have such a soft spot for knitwear designers who are publishing a solo book of patterns and manage to have personal details dotted throughout the book. I think Kate does this exceptionally well with personal diary notes from her travels so it feels like you are there with her as you work your way from start to finish.I  also love the photography and styling with this book which was provided by Tammy Hanratty Photography.
