Hi all - let's catch up on whether that Myrna sweater was too big, the WIPs I'm doing (including a new one) and lessons on being (in)appropriate.

Note - I said at the begining it would be a corona free podcast. I lied. It's not political, but it's hard to talk about fundamental life changes that only happened because of it without at least alluding to it.

Hi all,

Socks - many socks are done or almost done. I have a couple of impromptu cast ons that have been really fun to work on. A couple of short sewing things and then deep thoughts and positivity (without giving you a tooth ache, I hope :))

This week we talk about two tank tops: one knit and one crochet, and another hair kerchief. We also take a moment to see what i planned to learn and do with my knitting for 2018 and see how I'm doing against that plan. Finally, I wax a little nostalgic for slow, country-mouse summers and gardening.
