CH 141: Baby Knitting (for Fresh New People!)



This week I’m talking about the freshest of fresh starts: a brand new baby! There seem to be a lot of babies on the way in the knitting podcast world, and I’m looking forward to a fresh new niece to knit for very soon. I give a rundown of some of my favourite patterns for baby gifts, and my own fantasy knitting queue for fresh babies.

The Shawl Society Update:

Blacker Yarns is sponsoring the Mini KAL prize for Quill this month. They’ve given us a gorgeous skein of their brand new very limited edition St. Kilda Laceweight. I’ve topped it up with another skien, so this is a really special prize! Make sure you post a photo of your finished Quill to the FO Thread on Ravelry by October 2nd for your chance to win!

That’s everything for this week’s episode (it’s quite a lot!) I’ll talk to you next week. Until then, happy knitting!
