A real treat
I found your podcast by chance last week and am so glad I did. It is so beautifully presented and I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to all the previous episodes as I try and master quite basic crochet patterns (as I’m no natural). Your podcast has introduced me to people and ideas I would otherwise never have encountered so thank you so much.
