And the winner is...

Slightly belatedly (but picked out of a very lovely hat)...

Toots, send me your address and I'll send you your book. Hope you enjoy it.

Podcast!!! + giveaway!!!

I was deeply flattered when Kelley Petkun of Knit Picks contacted me to say that she was enjoying my book The Knitter's Palette, and would I participate in a podcast with her.

A bit confusingly, in the UK this book is called Knit 400, but the insides are the same, apart from spellings...

 Yes! Of course! Always on for a new thing (well, almost always...).

So a phone time was booked, we chatted at some length, Kelley was lovely, I was excitable...

And now the podcast is up on the Knit Picks website: if you so desire, you can listen to my alarmingly deep, decidedly London accent enthusing about colour and knitting.

Although in speaking to Kelley, I was rather preaching to the converted: this is a lady who takes her knitting with her when going out to dinner, who gets knitting care packages sent to her when she's away, who really LOVES yarn.

It was a real pleasure talking to you, Kelley.

And I have a copy of the book, US or UK edition, to give away. If you'd like it, then follow me and leave me a comment telling me which edition you'd like. I'll pick a name out of something hat-shaped on Friday 13, and post the book anywhere in the world.
