Episode 97 Show Notes


News -


The Knitting Pipeline Podcast is one of my favourite audio shows out there, and Paula is having a Pebble Beach Shawl KAL in the Knitting Pipeline group on Ravelry - details here.

The KAL runs from May 5, 2015 to July 5, 2015 and allows you to knit any one of Helen Stewart's patterns (and she's offering a 30% discount with the code found in Paula's group until May 31!).

You may recall I just finished knitting Helen's free knitting pattern, Glitz at the Ritz, published on Knitty.

Here's a pic -

Finally some proper finished object pictures! Glitz at the Ritz by Helen Stewart, yarn is Madtosh TML in Aura.  #knitting #knittersofinstagram

Designer Melanie Berg is having an 'Any Shawl KAL' in her Ravelry group, Mairlynd. Details on the KAL can be found here. If you've ever wanted to knit one of her shawls, now is the time! Her KAL runs from May 8, 2015 to June 12, 2015. I must admit, Oceanbound is tempting me...
