Welcome to Episode 356! Thanks for watching! Below, you’ll find show notes with embedded time stamps and links to project pages, patterns, and other things I’ve mentioned. I used non-Ravelry links when possible, but any link preceded by an asterisk means it does go to Ravelry, so be aware of that if Rav is not an accessible place for you.
There were a lot of prize winners announced in this episode! If you were one of them, please get in touch with me with your info either through Rav message or directly through email: [email protected] Thanks!
Lastly, I’m playing with the order of the podcast…I’m putting 10% at the end, after Shop News. It feels like a better fit there, content-wise, at the moment.
