Curious Handmade with Helen Stewart
Hello and welcome to Episode 2 of the Curious Handmade Podcast. It's Friday first of November! That means starting the countdown to the end of the year and trying to squeeze in as much as possible into the last couple of months! Today I'm looking forward to having a good natter with you today about knitting, an unplanned yarn shopping trip and my plans for regular podcast segments.

I can't tell you the details just yet but I'm planning a holiday season surprise for my knitters. one of the fabulous things about being a little indie designer is that I can totally make up the rules. I haven't worked out all the details yet but can say so far that I'm putting together a collection of sassy little patterns perfect for little gifts and it will be released as some kind of mystery game. I would love to hear your thoughts and feelings about gift knitting in the comments below or on the Ravelry Curious Handmade discussion board.
