Hello, hello! We are back with Episode 12 of the Twisted Stitches Podcast. Thanks for being patient with the delayed episode. Thuy’s grand plan worked and she was present for the birth of her new nephew Benjamin. He came in at a healthy 7lb 1oz. This means that Thuy needs to get cracking on her baby knitting!
