Show notes:

I will be attending the Great London Yarn Crawl on 20th September 2014. See you there?

With a hint of Autumn comes a call for knitters to embrace knitting season and knit so we're thinking about doing it together in a multicraftual way over on the Playful Day group

I review Lazadas blocking wires and have 2 sets to give away. To enter, please leave a comment below before 30th August 2014 telling me what you'd block with the wires. One comment per person and I'll select via random number generator and announce the winner on the show next time. Good luck!

You can find all of Lazadas current retailers here or order directly from their site linked above.
