Bringing together her long-lived passion for music and a newfound love of knitting, Xoli Ngcoza, music DJ and owner of Hand Knit by Xoli, shares a new Knitting Playlist and the inspiration behind her choice of music this month. Read Xoli's full story here.
As we say goodbye to summer, we can happily welcome Autumn: the season of bonfires, sweaters, scarves and beanies -I'm excited to be knitting those.
I love Autumn because the colors change, the weather becomes cooler and we tend to slow down. This season always gives us so much beauty; it's all over. The leaves change into different colors and if you enjoy dyeing like I do, nature is about to gift us all those leaves.
I compiled a really nice mix for Makers and I hope they will enjoy it while knitting or Crocheting.
1. Robin Kenyatta - Reflective Silence
2. Sri Chinmoy - Revealing Soul and Fulfilling Goal
3. Segue - Summits Spires
4. Dj Nature - Feeling Like A Woman
5. Segue - Sunshine Coast
6. John Beltran - Faux
7. Segue - Celestial
8. Floating Points - Sais
9. Mr Raoul K - Sene Kela (Ron Trent remix)
10. Mr Raoul K - Mande (Griotmix)
Happy making, happy listening,
- DJ Xoli
