  1. Hi Sally-Jane
    I have just finished watching your podcast no. 5 and thoroughly enjoyed it especially as it is ‘home grown’ and will definitely be watching your other podcasts as well.
    The magic join or Russian join works a treat and I have used it twice on my Hitchhiker Shawl that I am currently busy with – once to join yarn and once when I cut out a knot and you can’t even see or feel the join.
