90% Knitting – Episode 374 – Pigskin Party Plans

Welcome to Episode 374…thanks for stopping by! You will still find show notes below with time stamps and links to project pages, patterns, and other things I’ve mentioned. I use non-Ravelry links when possible, but any link preceded by an asterisk means that it does go to Ravelry, so be aware of that if Rav is not an accessible place for you. All of my contact/website/social media info is listed at the end of the show notes!



The tea I shared was from The Spice & Tea Exchange in Fernandina Beach, FL: Mystic Dragon Tea and Mango Tea.
