Interview with RiverKnits

Whist visiting Yarndale 2017 (Yorkshire based yarn show), I was ushered towards RiverKnits by my friend Bec.  I was instantly in awe of their yarns, colours and dyeing techniques.

I discovered that they live and dye (see what I did there!) on a narrow boat that was moored up less than a mile from my house.  It was such a golden opportunity to interview a dyeing duo on their boat that I coudln't pass it up.

What you will hear is an interview that was conducted as we sat outside on the narrow boat.  There are knocks and bangs and engines noises.  I deliberately wanted this as part of the interview so that you got a feel for life on the boat.  At the end there are soem lovely tunes played by Becci and Markus, so keep on listening.

The interview is also available as a video file on YouTube.  Unfortunately, the footage is over exposed (my baf for not sorting out hte wite balance better) but I felt it was still okay to put out and the interview is just so nice that I coudln't not be seen.

Rather than write lots about the interview, I just want to show you some photos below that punctaute the interview.  

You can buy RiverKnits yarns from www.riverknits.co.uk and follow them on Instagram and Facebook.  They also have a Facebook page for their folk band Das Boaty McBoatface.

One of Becci's favourite dyers is Victoria from Eden Cottage - you can see why!
