Mrs B's Podcast Episode 1

So today I was brave, or silly, I can't decide which, and I recorded my first ever podcast! It is something I have been considering for a while and today I decided to just do it.



Show notes

Works In Progress:

Socks for my father-in-law: my own vanilla pattern, yarn is Socks Yeah! by Coop Knits and The Bear went over the Mountain by British Bea Knits

Socks for me: Petty Harbour pattern by Rayna Curtis Fagan, yarn is Mirasol Sulka Legato

Baby cardigan: Baby Vertebrae by Kelly Brooker, yarn is Sirdar Supersoft Aran in Scrummy Plum

Mystery Knit Along hoodie: Twisted Trails by Lisa K. Ross, yarn is Wendy Aran with wool

Cardigan for Mum: Lady Sunnyside by Tanis Lavallee, yarn is Sirdar Supersoft Aran in Scrummy Plum

Cornish exploration shawl: Exploration Station by Stephen West, yarn is Cornish Tin 4ply from Blacker Yarns

Beanie Hat: Boyfriend Beanie by Chandi Agee, yarn is Stylecraft Life DK

Crochet squares and coasters from Boho Crochet, in Stylecraft Special DK


Failed WIPs:

Prairie Fire jumper in James C. Brett Marble DK

Snowflake jumper in Sirdar Snuggly DK and James C. Brett Marble DK

Both patterns are by Tin Can Knits and will be knit as birthday presents rather than Christmas presents. Both patterns are easy to follow. I have simply run out of time!
