Ch 145: Retreat roundup and Arranmore designs!


I’m back from the retreat and full of stories and gratitude for such a wonderful time. A beautiful place, lovely people, and almost endless hours knitting were hard to leave behind! Today I’m sharing a bit of what we got up to, and letting you know about lots of fun stuff coming up soon.

Shawl Society Update:

I’m about to release the 6th and final TSS pattern! In the meantime, there’s still some time to post your finished Aurore Shawl in the FO Thread. I said in the podcast that the deadline was this Sunday, but it’s actually Tuesday the 2nd of November, so you’ve got plenty of time to finish! I have some absolutely delicious prizes from The Copper Corgi and Seven Sisters Arts so you’ll want to be in on this one. We’ll also be having the overal TSS KAL drawing later in November, so keep posting your finished objects in all the threads!

Short and sweet shownotes this week! I’ll talk to you soon. Until then, happy knitting!
