In a departure from my usual Tuesday 'Show & Tell', today's post is a round-up of five things I have either talked about on Periscope or posted on social media, but which I haven't mentioned here yet. I don't want regular readers who aren't using the other platforms to miss out, so here's a quick summary.
1. On yesterday's Periscope broadcast I was squishing some super soft Scheepjes Colour Crafter (shade: The Hague) and asking for Hallowe'en pattern recommendations. I A viewer sent me a link to this lovely hat pattern by Sarah Hood, which is available as a free download on Ravelry. I thought some of you might like it too.
4. This one is for all the Outlander fans. As you may recall, I really didn't like the book, but watched TV show - mainly for the knitwear. Yesterday I spotted that Lion Brand Yarns have released official "Outlander" patterns and kits for both knit and crochet versions of key pieces from the TV show:
2. Last week I broadcast a Periscope showing my nostepinne in action (if you missed it, see this post for a video made by someone else). Many people asked where I got it, but it looks like the shop I used is no longer stocked so I may have found an alternative - an Etsy shop called Woodbeach where everything is handmade from locally sourced materials in the Welsh hills. UK and European postage is very reasonable too. (If you're in North America there are a lot more options - I think these look especially appealing, and you can find plenty of others which are all handmade by craftspeople closer to home.)
3. I recently mentioned on Twitter that I'd spotted some lovely FOs made from my own patterns. I'm never sure many people see my tweets - personally I miss almost everything that's posted there by those I follow - as it all moves so quickly. (I sound old!!!)
5. And finally, a reminder that the giveaway for a copy of the eBook edition of Louise Zass Bangham's book Knit Colour Play ends today. You can read the review and enter the giveaway here. I'll be pulling the winner out of a hat this evening, so you have a few hours to enter.
I'll be back tomorrow with the next part of the Rock Those Socks Make-along. See you then!
