A look back on 2012 - WOW what a year :)

WOW what a fantastic year :)

With over 23 million  lifetime views on my YouTube Channel and 18 million just in 2012 it has been the most busiest and most successful year so far. I have gained over 40,000 subscribers WHAT !! O.M.Goodness these numbers are making my head spin. Little ol me ?? Really ?? Some days I have to step back and say WOW I did this ?

I have made so many new wonderful friends and heard hundreds of crochet stories. I have helped save lives through crochet. Helped with suicide and depression. Help family raise money to help pay the bills, save for Xmas pressies and make them feel good about themselves.
Tears are welling in my eyes as I type this and I am so proud of what I have achieved. I am so passionate and dedicated to teaching others crochet that I have to force my self to go to bed :)

Every day bobwilson123 headquarters receives over 300 emails and messages  filled with love and support

Thank you to my army of helpers thought out the year. Amanda, Laura, Olgaa, Cassiopia and Monica, it would not be possible with put your dedication and support xx

Last but not least, i would like to say a BIG BIG THANK YOU to all the people that have supported me though watching my videos, leaving comments, sharing on the FaceBook Page , Joining our Ravelry group and supporting all of the crochet Community on YouTube 

Group HUG !!

Happy Holidays and I will be back in 2013 

PS. Bob the dog says HI !!

You taught me how to join granny squares. I found you purely by accident and stayed because your tutorials are fantastic. You are funny. You come across as a wonderful person, and you deserve all the good things that you get. More power to you.

Thank you so much! I discovered your videos when recovering from a back injury. 20 hats later I'm addicted. Your tutorials are so clear and easy to follow...and now you've taught me to read patterns!
