For those who don't know Ashley and her blog Woolful yet, don't loose another minute and go take all the woolen richness in. She interviews fiber people all around the world, with backgrounds and stories so different from one another, but all with the love of wool uniting us. These podcasts often accompany us while knitting, completing our experience one hundred percent, while learning loads of things.
Ashley lives on her farm in Idaho with her sweet little family, husband and two boys, dogs, chickens, cows and sheep. Talented knitter and designer, she also has a little shop, "Woolful mercantile", with delicious yarn.
Last summer, we were incredibly happy to become part of the Woolful podcasts, and you can listen to the no. 67 to get to know us a little better, with our Danish accent, our nonsense talking and long pauses. We hope you have or will enjoy it!
As we are a young and unknown little company, along with the podcast, Ashley launched a year-long knitalong with us with the idea of making more people discover our yarn and designs. The guidelines are very simple: you can order any knitting kit or any Biches & Bûches yarn from our little shop and discover our brand along with other knitters around the world! Then during the year, there are 4 drawings to send some gifts! The first one was in December, and the winner received a Biches & Bûches Winter Mittens Kit in the colors of her choice. The second one will be drawn by Ashley and it should be very soon! All you have to do to be part of the drawing is then just to post a photograph on your Instagram with either your knitting kit, yarn, knitting in progress of finished item with the hashtag #woolfulxbichesKAL <3
We are also part of the knitalong!
As you may be following on our Instagram, we are knitting with you guys! And you can ask us anything you like anytime you want about it. Astrid has chosen to knit the Biches & Bûches no. 25, while giving it a new touch with new light colors, an all-natural sweater, with the delicate pattern on the cuffs and neckband in a grey shade. I decided to start on our Winter Mittens, that I love so much and will be able to wear for next winter, in a beautiful Blue-Grey & Beige color combo.
To see all the Biches & Bûches projects going on, you can take look at #woolfulxbichesKAL on Instagram!
