  1. Oh Mabel is just gorgeous, she is lucky to have you, she looks so content and happy. Nice to see you back.

  2. I really like your cushions that you are making and would love you to make a pattern. For your prairie socks I suggest the Whisp yarn but all your choices are lovely. I missed your bag update day! I do hope you have a lovely holiday with your family. Mabel is such a beautiful looking dog and such a lovely temperament! I'm lilymaya on Ravelry and I'm in your group there! 💓

  3. I'd love a pattern for the cushion too please! Really enjoy your Podcasts and Mabel is just lovely.... ☺

  4. Another delightful episode! Thank you so much Jooles for being such loveliness to the world and such kindness too. Hope you have a great time away!! xx

  5. Hi Jooles, my question is ... who taught you to knit? Did you learn how to do the whirlwind toe just by reading instructions? I am looking at YouTube how-to's and I do not see one. I learned the basic knit and purl stitches in 8th grade and probably should take some knitting classes to help with mistakes, and one on one instructions in knitting socks. Thanks!

    1. Hi x I learnt as a child, I think my mum must have taught me the basics, I then didn't knit for years until a couple of years ago I think. I've used YouTube videos to teach myself, I wrote a blog post with some links to the YouTube videos that got me started on socks, here's link .....
      It may be of help x
      lots of love xxx

  6. Lovely photos from your walk - does look like Spring is in the air! It was beautiful here over the weekend, sun shining really brightly and warm. So unusual for Michigan - we'll be back snowing by the weekend!

    Thanks for another lovely podcast.

  7. Hi Jooles. I love your videos, your voice is so soothing. I just watched your latest video and was wondering where I could find the pattern for the toe you use on your socks. Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Daubie, thank you!
      Here's the link to the Whirlwind pattern that I like to use .....

      lots of love xxx

  8. Your blog is very beautiful! Greetings, Marisa

  9. Jooles I would so love you to do a cushion tutorial I think it is beautiful. I have never tried english paper piecing but would really like to give it a try.

  10. Another lovely podcast, watched with crochet. Thank you! Now feel the need to explore some UK indie dyers... Happy holidays
