Sorry I sound like a frog!! Hopefully I’ll be back to normal next episode (cross your fingers for me…).  There are many more edits than usual due to my coughing and hacking.

  1. I found you bc you subscribed to my blog and I am SO glad you did! You are an incredible knitter! Love seeing your work and looking forward to listening to you right now! =)

    1. Thanks Mel!! I only just discovered your blog, even though I’ve watched your podcast before! (I think it’s because it changed names, right, or did it just change locations?) It’s so funny that you just posted about making smaller things because I discovered in my year-end wrap up that the accessories I make are some of the things that I wear the most! I’m a sweater knitter at heart, but maybe I need to branch out a little. 🙂
