knittingILove ep 31 - gifts, knitting, patterns and gifts

Lots of things has happened and even though I tried to talk as fast as I could the podcast is still over an hour. I hope you don't mind. We have lots of winner, my knitting adventures and I am showing you over 10 patterns that you definitely need to check. My motto/sentence for the last two weeks was "If you want this day to be beautiful make / do something beautiful" - read it somewhere.
