little bobbins knits - episode thirty three

I recorded this episode on tuesday but was very unsure about whether to put it out or not. I talk about something a little bit difficult and I am a bit more open than usual. In the end I decided to put it out there, I hope you think that was an ok choice.

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 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, although some of them are less 'in progress' than others, a finished object that isn't technically finished, we chat a bit about the #purposefulstashalong and I show you some lovely things including a book that is not about knitting at all …… Thank you to 17twelve and Paula for your questions.




Shownotes

This project has been set up in memory of Wink of A Creative Being

Works in Progress

Hardy Socks in Regia 4-fadig Tweed with contrasting heels



My sock scraps blanket has had a few more squares added and I think I have decided how big I would like it to be


My sweet little storage cube is from Dotty Designs

Come What May by Susan B Anderson is in the planning phase, I have ordered beads and have picked out some Islington yarn from Kettle Yarn Co to use.



My project for the #purposefulstashalong will be a Newsom cardi by Bristol Ivy. I will be knitting it in Rowan Felted Tweed in the Clay colour.
All of the details for the along can be found in the thread here.

Finished Objects

My huge Pebble Beach by Helen Stewart in Heavenly Lace from The Uncommon Thread is off the needles. I will show you the blocked shawl in the next episode.



Lovely things

I received a very lovely package from Scharleen - thank you so much Scharleen!

I bought a lovely book about sewing lovely things - Handmade Style by Anna Graham

I spent a lovely day perusing all of the beautiful yarns at Loop with the lovely Tilly and bought a few skeins home with me.
