In the introduction, I mention A Playful Day’s project of The Maker’s Year.

1. A HANDMADE WARDROBE

Idlewood by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, out of Cascade Eco + in Lake Chelan Heather. My project page.

2. MY CUP OF TEA

No tea, but half a lemon squeezed into hot water with a bit of honey.

3. EVENTS

Winners for the Verdure/Bonbon KAL and the Mini Spinalong have been announced in the Ravelry group for the podcast. Many thanks to Fondant Fibre, Voolenvine Yarns, Casual Fashion Queen, Knotty Gnome and Katrina (nellieknits) for donating gorgeous and generous prizes for the KAL and spinalong.

The Mini Spinalong is still ongoing – I have just ordered a new prize to keep it fun. 🙂

I just spun a braid from Sara’s Texture Crafts Colour Club 2, River Ride, inspired by a Monet painting.

I mention Theresia’s (AKA Schnueffeltier/The PassioKnit Spinner) tutorial on mixing and matching various coloured braids of fibre towards a handspun sweater.
