Curious Handmade with Helen Stewart
Today on the show I have an interview with the delightful Mary Jane Mucklestone, some more musings from Squam an exciting announcement and a KAL prize winner!! Show Sponsor: Meadow Yarn is an inviting online retailer selling yarn, needles and notions. It's a small, family business based in rural Suffolk in the UK. Meadow Yarn was born out of a passion for beautiful yarn and knitting accessories and aims to bring you a range of great products. Yarns stocked include Northbound Knitting, Eden Cottage Yarn, the Fibre Co and many more. CH Country House Retreat After the wonderful time we had in Cumbria in March, we decided straight away that we wanted to go back and knit in the lovely Eden Valley again. And rather than wait until next year we thought we would have a retreat this autumn to celebrate the beginning of knitting season!  We also thought it would be nice to have a weekend retreat for people who couldn't manage during the week. And it was so beautiful in the spring that we thought we would do the same format just before Edinburgh Yarn Festival again next year as well!! The following dates are confirmed: Autumn Retreat 2016 Thursday 20 - Sunday 21 October 2016 Spring Retreat 2017 Monday 6 - Thursday 9 March 2017 If you would like to be kept up to date with more information sign up to the Curious Handmade Events and Retreats mailing list here: Sign up for CH Events and Retreats updates: * indicates required Email Address * First Name * Last Name * The Shawl Society Joining The Shawl Society feels like stepping through a hidden doorway. You know you’re about to escape into something fresh, unexpected, and full of possibility. The Shawl Society is a pattern subscription club for anyone who adores the element of surprise. Membership entitles you to six amazing months of secret shawl patterns (one pattern will be released each month – June to November) to knit along with your fellow initiates. Participation in the Shawl Society also opens up a world of secret codes, exclusive discounts from boutique yarn producers, and members-only pop-up sales. The six designs in this mystery collection cover the entire shawl spectrum. You'll encounter different shapes, sizes, and techniques, and the difficulty level will range from relaxing patterns you can knit as you lounge at the lakeside all the way to challenging projects to ignite your sense of adventure. The shawls will be released one by one, and each will take you on a journey. All you have to do is follow the path as it unfolds, one step at a time.  The Shawl Society - JOIN HERE Show Links Botan Shawl Amirisu Issue 10 KAL Angelus Novus Cardigan Squam Art Workshops  Natalie Miller Natalie Miller Designs on Instagram Mary Jane Mucklestone Mary Jane's Squam Roundup Mary Jane's Books That's everything for this week!
