Knitorama – Episode 026

Welcome to all new and returning viewers.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the tragedy in the USA where terrorists took over several planes and crashed them into the Twin Towers in NYC and the Pentagon. I remember exactly where I was when I first heard a plane has crashed into one of the Towers of the World Trade Center in NYC. Do you remember where you were!!

I won a prize from Carolien, the host of the Colourful Creativitiy Podcast from her 1st Podiversary Giveaway. I won an issue of Wheel magazine by Ashford, a dropspindle, fibre Battle Bat from Undercover Otter and it all came with a lovely card, some tea and sweets, which unfortunately all melted together (but tasted really good anyway).
