Hello from a very wet Cheshire Plain. Today I dream about a future space, announce a winner and gibber not so quietly about the nigh-on uncontrollable urge to knit Christmas presents.
Suggestions for quick(ish) present knits:
Quick Cable Slouch Hat by Azure
Calorimetry by Kathryn Schoendorf
One Row Handspun Scarf by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
A cowl knit in chunky yarn, like the ones here and here I knitted last year.
Fetching and Dashing by Cheryl Niamath
Mrs Beeton by Brenda Dayne (Ravelry downlad available from here)
Scar by Julie Gardner
Tidepool Socks by Rainy Day Goods
Fibre and Clay
Rowan Colourscape Chunky
Sheepfold (Scroll down to find the utterly delicious Methera)
Debbie Bliss Donegal Aran Tweed, as used in my Chocolate Stripes sweater
Intro music is Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, final music is Shchedrik - Carol of the Bells by Kitka, from the Magnatune Compilation album Christmas Music, both available from Magnatune.
We have a listeners' map! Please go on over to pop in a pin - I'd love to see where you all are!
Feel free to leave a comment here or at http://www.yarnsfromtheplain.podbean.com/, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a Ravelry group here, so come on over to chat. You can find me on Ravelry as talesfromtheplain and on Twitter as talesfromplain (although Tweeting can be sporadic!).
