Episode 43: How about a poncho-along?

Featured podcast 43

Welcome to Episode 43 of the Crafternoon Treats Crochet and Yarn podcast. Here are the new and condensed notes that I talk about in this episode ūüôā I also focus on my new Desert Irony crochet poncho pattern, which I did for the Stylecraft Blog Tour 2017 and I talk a bit about what what’s been on my hook and a couple of new projects. Later on, I highlight an important charity called Project Linus and explain a bit more about my recent niggling shoulder problem – a cloud but with a silver lining hopefully!

    I think I have written a message on the Ravelry page. Not sure though as I am not technically minded. I have purchased your poncho pattern, as I would like to join your poncho along if you decide to run it. I love the colour way you are wearing on your podcast. Enjoyed the podcast and glad you are on the mend.

    In this podcast you showed work on your lace weight shawl. Could you tell me the pattern you are using? It is working up so beautiful!
