little bobbins knits - episode thirteen

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.

I feel like this episode should come with a disclaimer. I tried to start it so many times without getting emotional but couldn't quite manage it..... just try to ignore it if you can. I lost my precious old man Brewski a week before Christmas. He has been my constant companion for 17 years, I miss him terribly and it seems I still can't talk about him without getting upset.

This week I have some works in progress to show you, some finished objects (one of which I now realise I have already showed you.... whoops), a couple of yarny acquisitions and I show you my non-yarn but still knitting related Christmas pressies.

  1. I have just watched your last podcast. I am so sorry to hear your devastating news.
    Seeing all the wonderful knitting you have managed to accomplish at this time is amazing. I think knitting is such a help when things in your life are difficult. Its so medatative.
    Im one of those that love to see Bobbin in the podcast. He is such a darling. Im not sure I have ever seen such a cuddly dog. He is so loving. Wishing you and Bobbin much love at this difficult time.

  2. So sorry for your loss. Fur babies reside in our hearts forever.
