Welcome back to the Truly Myrtle Podcast!
SPOIL YOURSELF MAKE-ALONG
It's been fantastic to see you spoil yourselves in the Ravelry group - my spoiling has been going well too!
I've also bought a new sewing pattern to finish my Chicken Lady outfit - Butterick 5756 is a full skirt on a yoke with pockets and I'm hoping to get it at least cut out this weekend.
Tell us in the thread how you're spoiling yourself to be in the draw to win a spot prize next week.
This week I've especially enjoying seeing Nat knitting her cardigan, Avril casting on an Antipodes Shawl, Stacey buying new fancy knitting needles and Jen planning her trip to the Geeky Puffin Knit Palooza Retreat where Tara Swiger will also be teaching.
CLOTHESLINE DESIGNS MIND DONATIONS
Caroline has sold 75 copies of her lovely one skein shawl Yellow Roses. She's donating 75% of the profits raised to MIND in the UK. So far she's sold 75 patterns and is aiming to sell 100 by the end of November. I've bought mine - if you fancy knitting a pretty shawl and supporting a very worthy cause, head over and grab your pattern now.
