Not Enough Pins for My Mistakes

This week, I finished my Christmas socks.  I've also been working on the All the Love pullover and the Hon Cowl. And if you spot the mistake in it when you see me, I'll give you a podcast pin. Or if you don't spot it, I'll probably still give you a pin.  I'm not fussy.
