This week I talk about Whats in the WIP?, a book review and events.

Thank you for all the lovely comments about Paris and I’m glad I could share a little bit of the trip with you.

What’s in the WIP?

Radiance Shawl – not quite blocked but nearly!

Aislinn by Amy Herzog – I’m back on track and tackling the lace with calm and lots of care!

I mention Kusha Kusha shawl and its influence on mindful knitting. I would love to make this one day!

Lots of power knitting on a secret, last minute design to enter in the Unwind Brighton Design Competition in Kettle Yarn Co Westminster sock yarn.
