This week I have a co-host! My mum Jude is joining me on the podcast and talking about what’s on her needles. She’s excited about our yarn swap too and we chat a bit about that, new lambs being born and lots of other things ….

The photo is the wee sweater on Jude’s needles – she’s using some yarn I dyed recently and is making a tiny sweater for my youngest brother’s “twinkle in his eye” – there’s no sign of a baby or a partner but best to be prepared!

Are you joining in the yarn swap? As of today we’ve had 57 people sign up – roughly half from NZ and the other half scattered around the rest of the world.

I’m keeping the Ravelry thread open until 1 October – so hop over and let me know if you fancy joining in.

Do you have a preference about colours or yarn weight for the swap? Are you intolerant to a particular fibre or food? Do you want a happy surprise? Tell us in the Ravelry thread so your partner can get a feel of what you’d enjoy.

As usual, fabulous theme tune by Mr Roberelli :)

p.s. the “cleaning music” Jude mentions is a tribute to Led Zepplin by Annie & Nancy Wilson – Stairway to Heaven.

Ensure you’re signed up to the Truly Myrtle Minimag to stay in touch and get discounts on new pattern releases.

We’d love to see you in the Truly Myrtle Hangout on Facebook!
