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.

This week I have some works in progress to show you - including one that has me in a complete dilemma - some finished objects ... some more finished than others and lots of lovely things. I tell you about a couple of events I have been to recently, draw for our giveaway and start a new one. I also forget a whole load of details - whoops!  I think I have included everything I missed in the show notes though...... I hope anyway.

little bobbins knits - episode fifty three

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'm all on my own today, well it's just me and the little Bobbin should I say. It's been a while since I recorded on my own so it may take me a while to get back into the swing of things. Anyway, I have so much to show you today - there are the usual bits like some works in progress, a few finished objects, some lovely things  and we have some new bits too as I have a little yarn review and a pattern collection review to share too plus a very beautiful giveaway and I draw for our last one. I do hope you enjoy the episode.
