Ep 77: Electra & Spoil Yourself!

Helllllooo! It's lovely to be back behind the microphone!

This week, in episode 77, I'm chatting about my new shawl pattern released this week and our upcoming make-along in the Ravelry group.

CATCH UP WITH ME!

I've been playing around with Instagram stories this week and you can watch me live, and then see the recording of my chat for the next 24 hours. Come and say hi! You can ask me questions and have a chat if you catch me live!

I'm going to have a go with Facebook live next week too ....

Lots of fun happens in the Ravelry group too and the more the merrier! Come and introduce yourself and show us what you're working on :)

NEW SHAWL ELECTRA!

I was thrilled to release my latest pattern this week. It is a collaboration with the very gorgeous Debbie from Skein Queen in the UK and I was completely thrilled to design something in her Selkino, merino/silk, yarn.

Electra is a lovely long, large wrap with striking lace and squishy honeycomb panels. The construction is simple and you'll keep the same stitch count through the whole wrap!

I just can't wait to see what colours you'll choose for your Electra! Do tag me on instagram or pop a photo into the Ravelry group so we can all ooh and ahh over your yarn.

If you'd like to use the same colours as me - Debbie from Skein Queen is taking preorders right now. Drop her a line and let her know that you'd like some.

SPOIL YOURSELF MAKE-ALONG!

It's time for our annual month of spoiling yourself!

Grab something that'll make you feel good; some knitting, sewing, cooking, embroidery, whatever! And head over to the Ravelry group to join in. Wip's are fine!

The idea is that you take some time in November to do something really nice FOR YOU! You have my full permission to totally spoil yourself!

Maybe you'll enjoy a relaxing afternoon of podcasts and cake? DO IT! Maybe you'll knit a shawl? DO IT! Maybe you'll walk every day? DO IT!

I'll rustle up some prizes and we'll kick off on the 1st of November. Let's spoil ourselves all through November and see how fantastic we feel at the end of the month.

To get you in the mood I've got a discount running until midnight 30 October 2017. Just use the code SPOILYOURSELF for a 15% discount on any Truly Myrtle pattern.

Happy knitting!!
