I encourage you to get a little selfish (or a whole lot!) in our Selfish Single Skein KAL. Cast on will be 21st November 2014 and we'll announce some prizes and fun on Christmas Eve. Hashtags? #SSSalong #apdpodcast.
To show we're not always selfish, Cinnamingirl and I will be inviting you to sign up for a Secret Santa Pattern Palooza. You'll be assigned a giftee to secretly gift a pattern to then in January, we're going to knit up those patterns in a casual KAL. Watch out from 1st December 2014 for sign ups. Designers are offering codes so do get in touch if you want to play too and keep an eye on the annual Indie designer Gift-A-long.
I've been guest blogging for BostonJen about monetising your podcast (it also works for blogs too!) while she guest blog here about good photography for blogging using your phone. I encourage you to let sponsors know that you found them from your favourite podcast too!
I welcome back pom pom magazine with my all time favourite pom pom pattern roundup.
