Learning to Knit with LoveCrafts

At the end of last year I was asked by LoveCrafts if there was anything new on the craft front I would like to learn in the new year.

The only trouble being we have a teeny tiny table, squashed in a corner of our kitchen under some cupboards. With a little help from Hobbycraft, I’ve changed it into an amazing Christmas table.
