Mini skein & yarn advent knitting pattern ideas

If you are a planner (erm not like me!) I have some knitting pattern ideas in my latest video for soon to be arriving yarn advent calendars. Or if you have a big stash of mini skeins and scraps (like me!) you can get started on these projects right away!

Don’t forget to like this video and subscribe to my channel; I’m working hard to try to add more videos and at this early stage on YouTube, every single view, like and subscription helps me so much and helps new knitters find me.
