    • Hi Sarah,
      Thanks so much for watching! I’m glad I could keep you company while you knit….I was probably knitting at the same time too! What are you working on? If you view the newest episode (#25 coming out very soon!) you will see what I’ve been working on 🙂
      Cheers!
      Mary

        Yay! I’ll just get myself a fresh cup of tea and my knitting and I’ll watch the new episode 🙂

        I knit on a few of things whilst I was catching up on the older episodes. I finished a pair of rainbow socks, I made a Louie the Lovebot toy (Rebecca Danger pattern) for my hubby for Valentines and I made some progress on a baby cardigan (Debbie Bliss pattern). Hoping to finish the cardigan today.
