3. EVENTS
– The Mini Spinalong is extended until Christmas. You can use #minispinalong on Instagram. There will be random drawings from now until Christmas, from the hashtag on Instagram and the chat thread on Ravelry.
– Claire of NH Knits just released her first pattern, the Agatha Socks, and has kindly offered a copy as a prize. Check out the Ravelry forum to enter.
– I am starting a KAL in the group for my new design, the Bonbon Shawlette, which was just released. (I also mention the Verdure Shawlette). The prototype was knit out of Fondant Fibre Austen High Twist, in her Gaia colourway.

4. A BIT OF SEWING

Day Tripper Top
I made a long-sleeved Day Tripper Top, that still needs pressing. I made it in the spirit of the Curious Handmade Wardrobe Challenge, as it goes perfectly with my Fireflies Rising Shawlette.
