Episode 26 of the hannaontheroad podcast focuses on ALL the making - a new FO, a few WIPs, and introduces two special womxn who are doing amazing things with locally sourced yarn!

I also answer Yarn Flakes' question on how to balance exploring the various things our creative minds are attracted to and having an efficient business image on Instagram! (Plus, I just basically want ALL the coffee during the entire recording of this episode.)

RUNNING A CREATIVE BUSINESS

Viewer question: 

Yarn Flakes: How do I keep focused on one creative area and should I ? I love to dye and spin yarn, create weaving art and also design knitting patterns. That's 3 very different things, and I can't help but think that I may be confusing my audience and not give out the best possible cohesive aesthetic. At the same time, I feel that I should do what I love and not restrain myself just to have a pretty uniform instagram feed. Do you have any thoughts on how to get a balance between exploring the various things our creative minds are attracted to and having an efficient business image?

Great question! Click through to watch the video for my answer :)
