Hello from an echo-y conservatory in the Cheshire Plain. This episode I talk Christmas, gin, giveaways and handspun!
If you would like to be entered into the giveaway for either a skein of laceweight Posh yarn or a skein of sockweight Posh Yarn, leave me a message by January 31st telling me which one you'd like to win and why. You can leave a message here on the show notes, over on the show notes on the Podbean site,
On (and Off) The Needles
I finished the One-Row Handspun Scarf in my first (and second) wheelspun in merino. My Ravelry project details are here.
I didn't finish the second pair of Mrs Beetons, so there are no photos on my Ravelry notes yet.
I made Christmas cards using some of JaneKAL's 9 patch cushion pattern for Woolsack. Details are sketchy, but here and here.
I made a start on my Rainbow Scrappy Liesl, too. Details are here.
Festive Fibre-y Gifts
I took part in the Secret Santa on the UK Spinners board on Ravelry and got some lovely goodies from Shunklies:
I also got a stand for my Ashford Loom from my hubby and The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook from Mum and Dad.
Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, 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!
