Happy New Year, everyone! I'm so excited to kick start 2018 with a new podcast episode and even more so to be able to do it introducing you to a fabulous book I had the pleasure of previewing. The Immortalists is Chloe Benjamin's second novel, and you can hear me gush about it (and talking about a super exciting collaboration between Chloe's publisher and Quince & Co.!) in this latest episode of the hannaontheroad podcast.
I'm also going through six FOs - although, spoiler alert, most of them are already gifted - and two Works in Progress as well as a few lovely things that arrived in my mailbox in the last weeks.
Last, but not least, I'm rounding up the episode with a glimpse into my plans for my businesses for this year which I hope you'll find interesting and as exciting as I do!
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.)
A new episode of the podcast is up, and this time it's not blurry - but it's seriously squishy. Quite a few news about WOODS, including events and a KAL, as well as a new cast on and talking about a handful of self-care practices I've tried make up the majority of this episode.
Without further ado, click here to watch me squish the life out of my latest WIP:
First up: APOLOGIES! I managed to sit so close to the camera that I'm actually out of focus almost the entire time :/ Luckily though, it's only a short episode and I don't have a lot of knitting to show so if it bothers you, simply listen without watching. Ehm. You know what I mean!
I'm showing you my two current WIPs, and then there's a longer section on podcast recommendations before I round out the episode with a talk about self-care and what I've been up to lately.
Yay, it's showtime again! Episode 22 sees the arrival of WOODS as well as 3 finished objects, one WIP and a range of gifts and acquisitions. I also answer a brilliant question by Lisanne (Theaterkind) on how to best use the time between now and wanting to become a freelance dramaturg / translator / writer to prepare for that.
Today I have a very special episode for you, recorded straight in the mountains of the Dolomites! I'm spending a few days with family and friends here on wonderful hikes, long stretches of reading and getting sunburnt. In episode 21, I'm announcing the winners of the #LinenKAL, opening another giveaway, share four knitting projects with you and dive deeper into how I organize my business.
Friends, I'm back! And not only with a new blog post, but also with a new podcast episode. Today I'm drawing a new giveaway winner, share my latest FO and my two current WIPs with you, answer a question on how to get comfortable with selling and talk about feminism and nazis.

It's a new week and I'm back with a new podcast episode! We're talking all things #LinenKAL, and we have some major sock knitting coming to your screen: One FO and two new WIPs! Plus, we're discussing what superwash yarn is and why you might want to consider not buying it anymore.
And with that bad, but necessary pun welcome to episode 15 of the hannaontheroad podcast! We have an episode full of exciting announcements: my first KAL - the #LinenKAL - a brand-new Ravelry group, Patreon and I'm looking for BETA testers for my new Instagram Mini-Class!
Hello lovelies! It's time for another podcast episode - and it's a good one! We draw our first giveaway winner, dive into a few new (or coming out of hibernation) knitting projects and talk about knitting projects of my dreams. There's also a fabulous listener question in the Business section as well as a quick overview of what I've been up to with my various business endeavours.
And we're back on the podcast road! After an epic trip to Edinburgh Yarn Festival and an even more epic trip to Patagonia, here's episode 11 for your viewing pleasure - including lots of WOODS-related WIPs and my yarn acquisitions from the festival:
And we're in the double digits! The hannaontheroad podcast celebrates its 10th episode - yayyy! - with a few WOODS-related WIPs, two special yarn gifts, and a great question on how I became a business coach and which skill I employ that might surprise you.
Want to find out what that is? Watch the episode here:
