CH 23: It might be the weather

Curious Handmade Podcast Episode 23 banner

Today I’m talking about What’s in the WIP?, Selvedge Spring Fair in Londontown and the Fireflies Rising knit along.

I’m feeling a bit tired and wondering if it might be the weather?

That last comment is a reference to this Australian TV advert from the 80’s which I’m finding hilarious and being a bit nostalgic.

Welcome to new members of the Curious Crew: rustysun, allthatcakeknit, Xstitch, YrnKrazy, Lastknit2, Mrshoo, Dutchie, Gracieanne, NMSTacey

I forgot to mention that Mrshoo aka Sarah hosts the In a sKnit video cast- check it out.
