Episode 54: Puppy Love

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 Dept:

Gayle—knit knit knit knit knit! Very sweet!

Alane—too many thoughts to address here, but I appreciate the comment. The Potterheads have struggled to decide.

Cureuskitte—I am SO glad to have helped! Panic is terrifying.

Shirlee L.: What an amazing tribute to the CFR in Tehachapi, "a gem of what could and should be for the fiber friendship world".
