My recycled garden tealight holder Patch the needlework dog. My pirate project bag. The glass coasters. The complementary cushion.

Episode 92: The Results Are In

Episode 91: Travelling, Travelling

Hello from the M40. Listen in as I prattle on to keep myself awake on a trip to Oxfordshire! Off The Needles I finished the Sheep Yoke Baby Cardigan! I love the little sheepy buttons, which came from Textile Garden at Unwind Brighton. I also got round to blocking my Rainbow Revontuli made with my Krafty Koala merino nylon WIP Crack Away! So lovely to see all the finished items clocking up! No one has yet finished up a WIP that is as old as my whale... You can take a peek in the thread here. Don't forget it's being co-hosted with the Knit British I'm chugging away slowly on my Dorothy, a Natural Dye Studio pattern. Good job crochet blocks don't need much bandwidth...Something I Really Like Podcaster meet ups! I also want to say thank you for my little project bag from RunKnitDig, which I was given at Unwind Brighton. Also plotting and planning the PodRetreat....Upcoming Events PodRetreat is back! If you are interested in joining me, JofromShiny Bees, Louisefrom Knit Britishand Chriss...
