Funny Christmas Knitting Patterns

Funny Christmas knitting patterns are order of the day. This week we take a trip down memory lane to 2014, and a pattern pick I originally recorded for A Playful Day podcast. It’s a Christmas themed one, and it – of course – contains some great comedy knitting patterns. There’s also some podcast news, and a new training I have been working on – Podcasting Unpacked – that’s coming very soon!

Podcast News

In the news, I talk about Podcasting Unpacked. This is a project that’s been in the back of my mind for nearly four years now. Whilst I’ve been offering podcast training and consultancy for other people, it’s never had its own brand before. There’s been far too much of me indulging my inner impostor. I’ve watched several people who’ve taken my training go on to position themselves as podcast experts, all whilst I have sat there thinking I didn’t know enough. Well, after nearly 9 years in the game, I think that’s rubbish.

I’m looking forward to making podcasting easy for everyone in 2021 with Podcasting Unpacked.

Brewtime Podcast

I was delighted to be asked to be a guest on Episode 1 of the Brewtime Podcast. Fiona, the host, is a longtime listener of the show and it was amazing to see her launch her own podcast. The podcast is about making content that matters and how that feeds into your business. We talk a lot about the Shinybees podcast and how it led me to what I am doing today. I also extol the virtues of giving people chips, peas and gravy when they ask for chips, peas and gravy.

I heartily encourage you to take a listen and check out Fiona here.

Funny Christmas Knitting Patterns

A vintage pattern pick from 2014, did you say? This was originally released on another podcast. The audio is pretty banging for 2014 and it’s still funny, so I decided to do a remix and bring it back to this podcast!

I love a comedy knitting pattern. A funny Christmas knitting pattern always goes down well, and if you can find one that will make your motorbike helmet festive and bearded at the same time, so much the better!
