A Video Catch Up; The Blossom Time Shawl and O’Reilly’s Yarn Retreat

Helen walking in a field wearing a white linen top and dark blue jeans with her hand knitted pink shawl being pulled up to her shoulders. The shawl pattern is named the Blossom Time Shawl.

It’s been a busy few weeks so I thought I’d catch you up on what’s been going on behind the scenes at Curious Handmade. A photoshoot, prepping for Knitvent 2021, teaching a shawl workshop with my new design The Blossom Time Shawl at O’Reilly’s Yarn Retreat plus a little update on my Simply Curious Socks WIP and my yet-to-be-named Scrappy Cowl.

Don’t forget to like this video and subscribe to my channel; I’m working hard to try to add more videos and at this early stage on YouTube, every single view, like and subscription helps me so much and helps new knitters find me.
