Episode 28: Finally got my Crafting Mojo Back!

Hello Everyone! It seems like I’m always coming back from a long break when I write these. The reason this time is that I caught something at Rhinebeck and unfortunately have been too sick to record the week after I got back like I had originally planned. Better late than never though right? Anyways since its been such a long time I have lots to share with you this time and plenty of things I’m excited about. I feel like I’m finally back in the swing of things crafting wise (I guess Rhinebeck was especially helpful to get me inspired about my knitting and everything again).

Episode 25: New Fantastic Yarn

Hello Everyone! I’m back again and so much sooner than the last time (I hope that I’ll be able to keep it this way too). I just couldn’t wait another week to share all my knitting with you, I’ve gotten a lot done since I last recorded since it had been so long. I also visited the KW Knitters Fair last week which was very exciting and I ended up with some great stuff I wanted to share with you too.

Well I hope that you all enjoyed this week’s episode, it was definitely a longer one anyways since it has been so long. Updates should be more frequent now but in any case if you subscribe to the blog or on YouTube it’ll let you know when I publish a new one so it will save you time checking (plus it makes me happy to see the number go up!). I would love to hear from you all so if you have anything to say please do leave a comment somewhere.

I think that’s all for now so until next time, Happy Knitting!

Episode 24: Chugging Away

Hello Everyone!

It’s been absolutely ages since I published an episode again, sorry about that. This time I had it all recorded and everything but just didn’t get around to editing it. I think since this seems to keep happening to me now that I am going to make myself a new rule where I always edit the episode on the same day as I record it to avoid future problems like this. Anyways, here the episode after all this time, I hope you enjoy it!
