Episode One: Introductions

Hi there!

Welcome to my first ever podcast! So glad you could join me here. This week is all about introductions, so I would love it if you would like to introduce yourself in the comments below. I will be talking about my recent FOs, WIPs and purchases, which there will be plenty of - I went to Wool Feast in Christchurch and brought back many goodies! So grab your knitting or crochet, curl up somewhere comfortable and enjoy!
