Episode 7: Joy and the Journey

Hi there! In this episode, we talk the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat--or a finished object and total frog.  We also chat about some WIPs I'm excited about, a languish anguish, a rant and a rave and some deep thoughts about how its important for me to remember that knitting is my joy and I get joy from the journey (unless I forget that focus).  It's also a lovely day as I podcast and I'm a little giddy from all of the fresh air.

Episode 21: Knitting--The Best Gift I've Ever Given Myself

Hi all, This episode we talk about how I've been knitting and finishing ALL THE THINGS! No, seriously, I only have one WIP right now and 5 FOs! How did that even happen?!  I had a disaster of mediocre proportion and one of minor proportion. We revisit where I'm at on accomplishing my 2017 knitting plans and talk about how I think I've figured out the problem with my gauge. Maybe. And then my gratitude for this great craft.
