  Today on the podcast I have one last shawl to share from Season III of The Shawl Society, and lots of stories from the Curious Handmade Country House Retreat. Once again there is a bit of yarn enabling in this episode, as all the lovely makers from our CHCH mini market spoiled us with their fabulous yarn, notions, and project bags.

I have a big juicy episode for you today, all about the amazing time I had in Vancouver at Knit City. I got to spend lots of quality time with some fabulous knitting friends and gathered a lot of lovely knitting treasures at the incredible market place. I should probably but a big enabling warning on today's podcast, because the many glorious vendors I mention are totally irresistible. I also have a bit of news about my most recent patterns and the upcoming Knitvent season (and the last pattern of The Shawl Society Season III...!)
