Episode 93: Advent

Hello from the Cheshire Plain. This episode was recorded on 30th November but unfortunately editing took a back seat to real life, so only got finished now.

On The Needles
As well as my Dorothy for WIPCrackAway, I’ve been working on the Mystery Hat from Woolly Wormhead. I think I may need to rip it out though as I suspect it is too small. 🙁
