Episode 62: More Drones

Comments are welcomed! Either comment here or go to our group on Ravelry.

Add yourself to our CogKNITive Listeners Map.

I have a YouTube channel "Doctor Gemma". Flash tips (1 minute or less) around surviving the pandemic and longer strategy discussions.

Buy Dr Gemma a Ko-Fi, if you're enjoying the podcast and feeling up to it. Remember that I am still working, though, so feel free to give the money to a charity instead.

There will NOT be a CFR (Cogknitive Fiber Retreat) this year.

I will NOT add you to any of my follower groups currently, due to robo-accounts. Please follow me here. You can contact me through our group on Ravelry or on this blog.

Warm Thanks 

Natalya for a delicious ko-fi. Your support is deeply appreciated!

What's On My Hooks and Needles:



In Progress:  

Temperature Blanket—almost there on Dec 29 as I record

Noro Hearts Scarf--on hold for a few other priorities

Yule socks: finishing the toe of sock #1

Romjul Sweater—on sleeves—1 sleeve done 

Making sweater project bags and stash tossing

Miss Babs Sale: some good customer service, but no yarn 

I’m currently wearing...  
Cats dress 
Halloween Frankinsocks
Brick sweater

My Two Favorite Resources:

Webs for supplies

Dizzy Blondes: 

Still working on more merino from
3rd bobbin (sigh), but no progress


Emotional Management Strategies: Sleep: cultivate the habit:
Regular bedtime and awakening
No caffeine after noon
Dark room
Exercise stops at mid-afternoon
White noise
Screens off 1 hour before, out of room 
Nothing but water 3 hours before bed
Army breathing in bed
Calm application 

Put a Lid On It: 


Aw Shoot!

Rock climbing: a bit—Covid fears

Fluffy Books: 

By Heron Carvic

By Sherry Thomas

By India Holden

Something I Really Like:

Drones—some recommended drones


Pupdate-- playing dead

Classes, glorious classes—27 online hours + 12 live so far

Yosemite plan

And Minerva gets the last word: we are blessed with each other.
