little bobbins knits - episode eighteen

Happy Wednesday (again) everyone!

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

Today I am podcasting with a very grumpy Chihuahua! I have some works in progress to show you, a finished object which you have already seen but is a little more finished than it was, some lovely things, there is a little little along chat and I tell you about an event I will be attending and ask you what your yarn festival buying strategy is.

 The Patons yarn  was a lovely gift from Kemper who has started an absolutely fantastic new podcast called junkyarn!

This is the book I couldn't stop reading!

My Sock Scraps Blanket got a few more squares added. Check out Jesse's magnificent finished sock yarn blanket!! Dreamy!!

Lovely things from the gorgeous YAK in Brighton. I loved this shop and can't wait to visit again!
