Episode 31: The One Without The Knitting

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.

Review: Mayan Spinnner Kit, £15 plus p&p. including a hand-carded batt and instructions, from Crafts From The Dungeon.

Giveaway: To win a pretty Mayan Spinner just like mine, leave a comment here, on the show notes at the http://www.yarnsfromtheplain.podbean.com/ site or over at the Ravelry group, finishing off this sentence: "I want to win a Mayan Spinner because..." Leave your comment by 24th November 2011.

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.

  1. Welcome to the weaving world!!!
    After washing and steaming I imagine your cloth will close up. If you wish a really tense fabric (i.e. for sewing a bag) you could full it.
    I love the colors of your fabric!
