little bobbins knits - episode sixty

Thank you so much to everyone who has been in touch recently, to the new members of the Ravelry group, to the lovely people who have subscribed on YouTube and the hugest thank you to those of you who are returning to the podcast, it really means such a lot.

I am back today with something slightly different. I have been inspired by a few different podcasters to try just picking up the camera throughout the day to show you my projects and little bits and bobs because finding a whole day to sit and podcast seems to be a bit hard to find at the moment - I hope you enjoy it, I really enjoyed trying something new on episode 60!

I have some works in progress and finished objects to show you, along with a little visit from mum and a peek behind the scenes at some bags in progress and a new giveaway. I announce the winner of our last giveaway too.

Thank you as always for your kindness.

I have a bit of an explanation about part of the reason why I have had trouble podcasting for a while, lots of works in progress and finished objects to show you and some very lovely things. We also have a giveaway in the Ravelry group starting today.
