As you can tell from the interview, Woolly is one of my favourite designers and I’m very lucky to be in the position to have gotten to meet her a few times in the past. Her energy and passion for hat design and circles is infectious and it all comes wrapped up in a loving person and a fantastic quick wit. We chat about everything from photography to what the future holds and I’m guessing you will want to bookmark this page for future reference. Today’s episode comes from the ballroom in Powerscourt Townhouse, which is a podcastor’s nightmare but we powered through and I hope you enjoy today’s show.

Grow

Woolly and myself got to discuss her life in the artistic community, her DIY raised bed garden and tire hunting (yes! You will have to listen and see). I’m so lucky to have gotten to glean lots of useful information on how she sculpts her beds and it’s a side of Woolly that I’m delighted to share with all of you.

Craft

You all probably know how vast Woolly’s knowledge base is from math to sculpture, art and design to gardening and sustainability. As you listen to the podcast it’s hard not to get excited about all of her interests and hobbies, did you know she likes to dabble with silversmithing ?

Woolly also chats about her favourite patterns from Painted Woolly Toppers for Kids, her personal favourite hat pattern Tucked and she shares advice for people starting out. Finally, you can also find out what the future holds for Woolly as she discusses her mKAL . This is her 9th mystery knit along, can you believe it! This year the KAL focuses on 3 different hat patterns a beanie, beret and slouchy, all around one theme. You get to choose which you want to knit rather than having just one type of hat. The patterns are available as a beret and a beanie+slouchy combo or as an ebook for all three.
