Welcome to new members to the Curious Handmade Ravelry group and thank you to farfromharmfarm, techknit and firebrand55 for introducing themselves on the group.
I also announce the winners of the London Underground Tea Towel giveaway from Episode 18.
What’s in the WIP?
Designing a shawlette
The March pattern for the Dream Big collection is coming along nicely.
I’m designing a spring influenced shawlette in Juno Fibre Arts Alice 4ply.
Juno Fibre Arts is having a big shop update of some stunning Alice 4ply on Thursday 27 March.
(I thought it was 21 March so I mention the wrong date in the episode but you will have more time to have a look so its all good!)

Self Indulgent Sweater for Squam
I’m knitting Aislinn by Amy Herzog for my next sweater project.
I talk about preparing to start the project, choosing the best size to knit, knitting a gauge swatch.
Question for this week is do you swatch and what motivates you to swatch?
The Simple Life
I did a bit of decluttering in the stash and wonder what you do with your left over yarn from projects??
There are exciting plans afoot for a podcaster meetup at new UK yarn event Unwind Brighton in July
I’ve posted details about my Paris for Yarn Lovers trip in May and please have a look at the video in the post. I’m ridiculously pleased with it!
And A Game!
