Hi all!

This episode we talk about where to find my 'knitjo' and look at a bunch of knitspiration patterns for summer evening walks on the beach - think lightweight cardio and pullovers with the occasional shawl thrown in. We talk about my move (I'm sort of here!) and how all that's going at the end.

Hi there. In this episode I talk about the pros and cons of knitting a cardigan in the round and then steering, how sewing is impossible in my current state of mind and all the general uncertainty beginning on certain time frames :) Here we go.

Hi all,

In this episode we talk about a delightful finished object, the great start to a new sweater and why it is that my brain can do some hard things but I can't bring myself to place sewing pattern pieces and cut out fabric :) Not just me, right?

If the title put Oingo Boingo in your head, you're welcome :). In this episode, I talk about getting through the holidays, giving notice and enjoying the last days at current co, and you know, some knitting and sewing content. If you just want crafting, you want from about 17-18 mins in until about 38-40 mins in. I was chatty. What can you do?

Hi there. In this episode we chat about several wee WIPS, some fine on the needles work and my on deck crafting (which I'm super excited about). We also chat a bit about a bunch of changes upcoming in my life and the things I'm noticing that are holding me back or which tend to make me unhappy. And I'm trying to figure out why.

Hi All,

Perhaps the title is a misnomer - but I've got some finished weaving objects and some lessons learned thast are helpful and that I'm still trying to figure out. I've got a little knitting and sewing on WIP and by popular request a top ten of the crafting and other entertaining audio and video shows I use while crafting.

Hi all 

Happy New Dumpster Fire! In this episode we talk about several WIPs, my need to diversity what's on hand to craft and some deep thoughts around positivity and figuring out some lies I've long held about myself as truths. And how that's not been helpful and how I'm trying to change that.
