Giddy Yarns - Episode 24

Here are the show notes for Episode 24.


I discuss the New Along CAL, designed to encourage you to try out some new techniques or skills. Details can be found in the chatter thread on Ravelry or below the video on You Tube.
We’ve been lucky enough to have a few prizes donated:

Vicky Gorry of “Vera and Bess” designs has offered 3 crochet patterns as prizes, check out her patterns here.

Gilly of MrsSCreations on Etsy has also donated a project bag as a prize. You can find her Etsy shop here.

Thank you so much to both Vicky and Gill for their kind donations.
