Thanks for watching Episode 363! Welcome! 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 of my contact/website/social media info is listed at the end of the show notes!

37:07 – 2021 Nature MALs
We’re still in the Flora period of the MAL. The submission form is linked in both the Rav thread and in the FDW blog post. There was a hiccup with the form rejecting entries as spam for a bit, but I believe that is worked out now. If you have any trouble submitting your FO form, please email me at fibernymph AT gmail DOT com and let me know!
40:00 Zoom Chat – I’ve scheduled my first trial run of a Zoom chat for this Sunday, 3/28, at 3 p.m. eastern. If you’d like to take part, you can sign up by emailing me at fibernymph AT gmail DOT com, and I will send you the Zoom invitation.
43:12 – Shop News
Just a reminder – if you ordered a dye-to-order Pi skein, these are all running on a six week turnaround for shipping. If you ordered in-stock items with your DTO item(s), everything will be held and shipped at the same time. Thanks for your patience!
This Saturday, March 25, at 10 a.m. eastern will be my 10th Anniversary colorway update! It will feature the two versions of my 10th anniversary colorway – 10 Years of Stripes and Color: Bright and Muted. These items will be in stock and ready to ship.

A lot of the videos posted in the last 8 months or so are quite a hoot and just really fun to watch from a “just a normal couple” interaction kind of way.
