Welcome back to the Truly Myrtle podcast! Episode 66 is all about knitting along together and I’m chatting about swatching and finding the right size for your Timely cardigan before we start the KAL. Enjoy!


We’re wrapping up today! I’ll keep the thread open until Sunday afternoon (NZ time) so you can get your finished objects photographed and in the thread, and then I’ll draw some winners for our amazing prizes. Thank you soooo much to our generous sponsors and to you for joining in and making this month more fun xxx

We’re kicking off the Timely KAL tomorrow 1 July 2017! Head over to the thread to join in, show us your yarn and talk about swatching and which size fits you best.

You can find the pattern here.

If you’ve got questions about swatching, have a read of my recent mini-mag article about “how to swatch”, hopefully it’ll answer most of your questions.


Thank you so much to Kathy and Jess who left me cookbook ideas! Here are the books they suggested to try:

Burma: Rivers of Flavor by Naomi Duguid 

Charmaine Solomon’s Complete Asian Cookbook which has a chapter of Burmese foods.

And, there was a recent review of Burma Superstar on Design Sponge and it looks great.


As usual, my fabulous theme music is “casting on” by the very clever Mr Roberelli. I can thoroughly recommend all their albums :)
