  1. Just an FYI: The hot link to the Zephyr cardigan by Celia McAdam Cahill isn't live. It's gorgeous, by the way!

    1. Thanks for the FYI, Jan! I've fixed a link. Isn't it a great design? Celia is such a talented design :-)

  2. I was interested to you hear you speak about The Staircase series
    You should listen to the version called Beyond Reasonable Doubt, made for radio by the BBC. There are many facts that The Staircase left out. Maybe they are included in the book. I have a feeling that she was interviewed
    Always lovely to hear your voice, Tracie, we still talk of the trip we had round Bath. Sorry, I seem to be on Ravelry less and less. Life us busier now I am semi retired! Best wishes to you both and the family x
