little bobbins knits - episode forty two

Thank you so much to everyone who has been in touch over the last few weeks, 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.

I have an obscene amount of works in progress to show you today but thankfully I also have a couple of finished objects too! I have some lovely things to share and I announce the winners of the two giveaways. Is anyone else feeling a little overwhelmed with Christmas knitting?
