Today I’m taking a glimpse back at the wonderful Curious Handmade Country House Retreat, and already getting excited about the Edinburgh Yarn festival. Thanks to the magic of technology (time travel?) as this episode is released I may be on a train between the two events! I chat about my shopping strategy for EYF and think about how I might prevent myself from buying all the yarn.
