Episode 39: What’s In A Name?

Hello from a cold and wintery Cheshire Plain! This episode I share limited progress, explain terminology and hector my listeners.

Giveaway: Thank you for all your entries. We have winners!

Works in Progress: I’m knitting a cushion back (no photos or Ravelry details yet) and I’m still spinning the Cheviot I got in the Secret Santa on the UK Spinners board on Ravelry from Shunklies (still no pictures but I’ve found the purple!).
I’m also lusting after Easyknits‘ Superwash Merino Fluff in Punk colours (sorry, I mispelt it in the show) and can’t wait to spin them. Jon’s blogpost about them, along with his finished yarn, is here.

Something I Really Like: My conservatory!

Woolsack Update: Please please please consider making a cushion for the Woolsack project. There’s a thread over in the Ravlery group waiting for your pictures.

Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, available from Magnatune.

We have a listeners’ map! Please go on over to pop in a pin – I’d love to see where you all are!

Feel free to leave a comment here or email me at yarnsfromtheplain AT googlemail DOT com. We have a Ravelry group here, so come on over to chat. You can find me on Ravelry as talesfromtheplain and on Twitter as talesfromplain (although Tweeting can be sporadic!).

TTFN, Nic
