Episode 103: Every Knitted Thing

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 -

To everyone for their best wishes for the Hubs' eye.

Knittinghiker: Nora the Black Cat is lovely and Minerva salutes your fine taste in companions.

Christina H for a generous pot of ko-fi.
