Aplayfulday is kindly sponsored by Superknits, who are changing and to mark this evolution are hosting a massive sale of all branded yarn to make room for their own super yarns- go on, spoil yourself!!!

Show notes:

I will be attending Unravel at the end of February 2012 on both days. The podcaster meetup is happening in the East Wing, behind the Interknit booth at 11-12 on the Saturday as aprt of the Ravelry party. Please feel free to come and say hi on the Sunday but I won't be doing a meet and greet on this day!

Save the date- Wonderwool is in April.

I can tell you that even French Canadians like to talk about the weather but that may be a trait we inherited from the British! I love the Julissa pattern as well! It's on my queue since the first time I saw it!
