SHOW NOTES:

Using a new microphone, not in love with it yet, but will continue to mess with the settings to get the best audio quality possible. (Sorry, audio snob alert!)

Join the new Ravelry Group here to get the latest on the podcast and to chat about all the things you’re working on!

(Book Talk starts at 49:00 – oof, long episode!)
