  1. Wow. I am honored to be mentioned in the same blog post as Prick Your Finger. This post has given me so much to think about, and I considered myself one who has thought pretty deeply on this particular topic.

    Thanks for bringing these issues to the knitting public’s attention. It can get lonely on this side of them.

    1. Thank you Susan, I’m really glad you enjoyed my post. Loads of your writing in the past – I’m thinking especially of this one: http://www.fiberfarm.com/2009/06/enough-with-the-rain-already – have made me think about what goes into the production of yarn, and of the realities of farming which we must support, as knitters, through our buying choices.

      In my head you and PYF are absolutely part of the same important conversation on, and movement towards, shifting perspectives on where what we buy comes from. Through both of your blogs I learn more about how in buying locally produced materials, we invest in communities, employment and culture as well as in YARN. Hurrah for Juniper Moon Farm and Hurrah for Prick Your Finger x

  2. Prick your finger is new to me, except for the fact that I remember you Felix speaking about them re your first badges.

    What an inspiring job they do. Such valuable information you are sharing here. It’s a whole universe, isn’t it?

    Incidentally, I saw – by pure coincidende – that they are offering a pdf download of a pattern my grandmother must have used decades ago to knit an aran sweater using Shetland wool. I felt rather sentimental – as I always do about wool!

  3. Wow! This is so inspiring, I was a the V&A Cast Off event which got me back into hand knitting – and now I’m in Canada where there isn’t the same heritage. I’d LOVE to be a part of this. Yarn bombing is the thing over here.
