  1. Rachel, if you mentioned it I missed it, but what are you wearing? Is it a vest or a shawl? If a vest, what is the pattern.?

    1. I forgot to mention it! It was a mash up of the Solaris cardigan and Stephen West’s Cambio vest. There’s more on my Ravelry projects page :)

  2. Thank you so much for the hint for the jumbo flyer on the Lendrum. Perfect timing as I have plying to do😊 crossing the band made a noticeable difference in the amount my wheel rocked! I truly appreciate the knowledge you impart on your podcast. This is not the first thing I have learned from you. You are a natural teacher.

    1. Thank you so much :) I’m really happy to hear that helped – it had made using the Jumbo so enjoyable for me so I’m glad it helped you too!
