little bobbins knits - episode twenty five

Happy Tuesday everyone.

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

Today I have some works in progress to show you, two finished objects and I have added in a poorly filmed garter tab cast on tutorial. I also have some lovely things to show you and I share a little bit of happy news, since I'm a bit shy about sharing personal things like that it is a bit of a blink and you'll miss it moment :D

    I really like the combination of yarn and fabric, and Bobbin is such a sweetie. Thank you for another great podcast.

  4. congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I noticed the ring at beginning and listened very carefully while knitting on baby jacket. thought I must have missed the ''announcement'' and ready to rewatch when you mentioned engagement. hope you will be very happy
    any chance of a close up???

  5. I tried to comment last week and now see it didn't go thru, hmm...

    Anyways BIG congratulations on yours and David's engagement, I'm so very happy for you both! And your ring is just stunning, so very beautiful!

    I don't knit, I crochet but do very much watching all these awesome podcasts and love watching Bobbin of course. C-:

    Keep up the good work, see you next time! ♡♡


  6. Congratulations on yours and David's engagement! I'm so excited for you and looking forward to hearing about the future wedding planning. I've been watching your podcasts for a few weeks and love them. Especially loved the one where your mom joined in. I lost my mom years ago and enjoy seeing other gals with theirs:-)

  7. Thank you for the garter tab tutorial! I actually noted it a long time ago. I'm about to cast on a new shawl with a garter tab and wanted a smoother start, so I will try your method.
