Hello from a drizzly Cheshire Plain. In this episode I talk about all the other things I've been doing instead of knitting, play with a new toy and wax lyrical about squash.
We have a listeners' map! Please go on over to pop in a pin - I'd love to see where you all are!
Not on the Needles (!): Something that will potentially become a Kauni Wrap...
...some Tunisian crochet...
...some scrap spinning...
...and some Polymer buttons.

Something I really like: Cooking with squashes! One favourite is a stuffed squash using a Schwartz Spices mix, another is a risotto I created this week, using roasted chunks of butternut squash and chorizo.
