little bobbins knits - episode fourteen

Happy Monday everyone.

Thank you so much to everyone who has been in touch over the last couple of weeks, to everyone who has joined the Ravelry group and to the lovely people who have subscribed on YouTube.

Thank you to the lovely Helen from the wonderful Curious Handmade podcast for mentioning me on your last episode.

This week I have lots to show you and talk to you about. I show you my works in progress, recent and not so recent finished objects. I show you lovely things from really lovely people, my yarny Christmas pressies and I talk to you about some exciting things coming up that I am very excited about.

Little Along Kal

Zena from the Little Yellow Uke podcast and I are hosting a joint knit along. Join in and knit something little with us. It could be a little item, with little needles, with little yarn or whatever little means to you. You could make a little softie or little-ify a big one. Come and join in the chat and let us know what little thing you will be making. The little along will run through the littlest month of the year, February, so start and finish your little project in that month to qualify for prizes.

Thank you so much for watching.
