We were joined by la sexta noticias who interviewed us about our projects and how knitting was becoming popular amongst younger people. It's in Spanish, but it's less than 2 mins long if you want to check it out.

Siona, one of the madrid knits founders, sent me this picture of me being interviewed!

You might be able to see the thick and thin nature of the yarn, which to me is not really great for socks.
