Despite already being enrolled on several classes (not all yet completed) I'm feeling incredibly tempted this morning - Shawlscapes (Craftsy class) with Stephen West has just gone live!

Although I've already made a Boneyard Shawl (and several others) which is included in the course I am tempted to enroll for Stephen's tips, and of course, his personality - he's definitely one of my favourite designers.

I already gave into the temptation to order an XL Micro Trindle with the remainder of my birthday money. Have you seen them before? Or tried one? The first time I really became aware of them was on the Yarngasm Video podcast there is a review from The KnitGirllls here - I really can't wait to try it out - hopefully it won't take too long to arrive.

So what's tempting you these days..... and what have you already succumbed to? 


  1. I've been tempted by that class as well because I love what Stephen West does with shawl shaping. I'm currently working on my own unusually shaped shawl inspired by some of his designs.

    I've recently ordered a Tibetan Spindle from IST ( liked the idea of another way of spinning that I could do whilst leaning back. Check out some of the videos on YouTube, it's a fascinating way of spinning. I think it's more popular in the US.

    1. That looks interesting - I'm off to watch the videos! :)

  2. Yes, also very tempted ... I bet he is a great teacher and it would just be fun to watch him. ; )

  3. I say go for it! LOL, enabling you here.
    I love going to conferences, but Craftsy is so tempting to be ale to chillax in my PJs and learn a fun technique.
