Episode 169: Week of Oops!

This episode will upload February 17, 2024

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

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 : 

Little Knits had a sale!

Salpal: " I thought about how long it takes to rebuild trust, and how you have to keep doing reparation the whole time if you want to build trust. A good apology and one instance of reparation might not do it. I am thinking of your coworker. Her reparation, unintentional as it was, did nothing to build trust between the two of you. So good she left you alone."
