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.

What's On My Hooks and Needles:



In Progress:

Wild Lettuce Shawl: on the knitted on lace edging, on the last edge
Twinface’s vest (restarted in smaller size) IT'S HOME AGAIN WITH ME!!
Temperature Blanket—Caught up to mid-September
Handspun Brick—separated for arms and finishing the silver stripe of silk-BFL

I’m currently wearing...  

Socks! Inexpensive yarn  Serenity Sock from Joann's due to bamboo content that keeps feet cool

My Two Favorite Resources:

Webs for supplies--I bought more size 9, 40 inch Addi needles--arrived!

Dizzy Blondes: 

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

Strategy: managing hypersensitivity and assuming the best
