I finished my cashmere socks!
While knitting, I listened to an awful lot of podcasts. One of my favourites is Cast On by Brenda Dayne. She is a Canadian living in Wales and she has a great couple of episodes which cover her visit to the National Wool Museum in Wales. She did them several months ago now, but they are well worth listening to if you are interested at all in how wool is prepared and woven and the woollen industry in Wales.
I found them fun to listen to because one of the things I enjoy doing on holidays is visiting textile museums and I’ve been round woollen museums in France and read commentaries on them in French so it was nice to hear it in English for a change! Ever since I set up the blog I’ve been toying with the idea of setting up a clickable map with links to textile museums and I even have a category in my favourites folder where I add them whenever I find them. One day maybe it will come to fruition… I like the idea of being able to go to it whenever I’m going on holiday and just to look at the map and see if there is one nearby. Please, if anyone has seen anything like this on the web, tell me before I do start one and spend hours preparing it!!!
