Episode 10.5 - Christmas 2014 Mini-sode

A quick hello from YarnderWoman (and two special helpers) to show off the knitted presents made for Christmas 2014. :-)

Note - one of the little helpers gets rather excited when on camera, so be prepared for a little bit of extra noises while I'm talking. ;-)

A full-length, regular episode will be out in a couple of days time, and I will include details of the projects shown in this mini-sode with the show notes for the next episode. Until then, and as always, happy crafting!
