Episode 60: Happy Christmas!

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.

When you talked about less expensive yarns, I was reminded that KnitPicks yarn is usually a good quality at less expense. The bases I use, Swish, Swish DK, Cotlin, and Dishie have all been of a good quality. Thanks for the podcast. I continue to enjoy it. Your strategies are so interesting to me. We can all benefit from better mental health practices.
