podcast episode 18


My final podcast for 2016 and it's a real blast.

I debut my new super subtle Christmas pompom collar, you might have noticed it. Expertly designed to jazz up any outfit, wear it with everything and definitely to Tesco, you need to do your supermarket shopping in this collar to really experience life! If you want to find out how to make one just click on the link below which will take you to the project page on Ravelry, I've detailed how I made it there (it's so easy that I didn't want to list it as an actual pattern).

Aside from it looking like there's been an actual pompom factory explosion around my neck it's a good podcast with some finished objects, works in progress, some of my favourite free Christmas crochet patterns and a devastating disaster too (think four year old toes and delicate granny blanket).

All show notes and links can be found below. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all.
