Intro & Announcements

I’m wearing my Leah Cowl, pattern by Suzy Knotsosquare.

I listed a large collection of semi-solid tweeds in the shop today!

Sunday, 1/21, is the final day to sign up for the Round 2 of the Lepidoptera Yarn & Fiber Club.
Sunday, 1/28, is the last day to pre-order the most recent two Middle Earth Imagined colorways, The Order of Wizards and Gandalf the Grey.
Link to the shop is at the end of these show notes!

Trigger Warning: Beginning at 6:37 in the announcements and through my first project, I talk about loss & grief related to the loss of our one cat this week and some of the emotions that triggered in me. If you’d like to skip this part, jump ahead to the second project section, Rios Reciprocal, at 12:55 in the video.
