The Lazy Knitter – episode 2

Hello Everyone!

Yay! Episode 2! Let me start off by thanking everyone who commented here, on Youtube or on Instagram! It’s been absolutely amazing to see you all as excited about this as I am. It had me very motivated and excited to get to work on this second episode. I have a bunch of changes and improvements planned and will be implementing those over the next few episodes. One of the changes this episode was a proper intro and the new segment “Snippets”. I hope you enjoy this episode!
