iMake
A Guernsey girl shares her love of everything creative and handmade. Episodes cover a wide variety of crafts including knitting, food, photography and much more. The show also includes a generous helping of Guernsey culture too. So go on, join in - share the handmade love and celebrate the sheer joy of making stuff. Show notes can be found at www.imakegsy.com.

Welcome to episode 64 of the iMake podcast.  This is a short and sweet episode during which I teach a very nice young man, Ollie, how to knit! Enjoy.

Here's the knitting rhyme I mentioned: under the fence, catch the sheep, back you go, off you leap.
