little bobbins knits - episode 65

Thank you so much to everyone who has been in touch recently, 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.

Thank you so much for joining me for my quite delayed podcast - I explain the delay a bit in this episode. I am so happy to have my mum in this podcast and we share what we are working on, what we have finished and some projects we are planning. I also draw for some giveaways and show you some purchases from some recent wooly shows.

I also show my newest sock pattern designs in this episode and talk about my now completed collection - designing feels like such an exciting adventure and I am so grateful that you have all been so supportive and encouraging of it - thank you so much!

Works in Progress

Mum is working on a French Macaroon in Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK

I have made some progress on my Josephine Cardi - I am knitting this using some Lykke fixed circulars that I got from Cat and Sparrow

Projects in Planning

Mum is planning a quilt for David and I and lots of baby quilts.

Finished Objects

I have finished another Angelus Novus and I have also finished my Boxy in Cosy Posy Yarn Co.

Mum finished a beautiful embroidered mat for Bobbin.

I also finished a Plover dress from a kit from Ainsworth and Prin but it was a gift and has already winged its way to it's intended recipient.

Mum has also finished my stool cover since the last episode.

New Designs

I talk about my recently released designs Rita and Forever and Always

Wooly Additions

I had the pleasure of going to a couple of wooly events over the last couple of weeks and bought some yarns home with me from Olann, Uschitita (which I can't seem to find a link for at the moment), Ducky Darlings and Dusty Dimples.
