Today we begin with some festive chatter about that most traditional of Christmas activities – the nativity play. I was a cultural experience in the North of England, including a Yoda Donkey, highly flammable sheep and a Rockport-boot and Phantom of the Opera mask wearing dove.

In true enabling spirit, there are also some ideas for Christmas gifts for the sock knitter in your life. Check out the Sock Ruler, Sock Blockers, some new needles (I like Hiya Hiya Sharps), a class from Craftsy, perhaps or an awesome Addi Express Machine.

The podcast now has its own Patreon page. After lots of questions from listeners about how they can support the production of the podcast, I’ve set up a page on Patreon with an array of rewards at different levels. Hopefully you will find these exciting and worthwhile and will consider lending your support.

If you’re not familiar with Patreon, it’s basically an online platform where you can support content creators. It’s easy to sign up and you can cancel at any point, plus it provides a great way to communicate with all the Patrons of the show, as well as offering rewards and setting goals.
