Since I've been on....

I've put a few photos on today so you can see I've been busy knitting and spinning amongst test knitting and making items for the shop update. Sorry I haven't recorded an episode, I just haven't felt up to it both physically or mentally. I am going to try to record next week for Tuesday. I have a lot to show you all and I've missed you too. I have a couple of finished items, a few new projects to show you and yey some spinning too. Plus the new UFO to FO KAL thread is now up in the group on ravelry. So come join in.
Take care of yourselves.
