90% Knitting – Episode 357 – Enjoy the Process of Doing it Badly

Welcome to Episode 357! 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 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 contact/website/social media info is listed at the end of the show notes!

90% – Intro

What I’m Wearing – a tube scarf of my own design using my 2019 Advent Minis from Sweet Sparrow Yarns. The stitch count for the pattern was based on the Litmus Cowl pattern by Amy Florence Edwards Green.
