Episode 120: And all shall be well

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 :

Tiny shiny things: I was not able to listen to the episode you shared with me, but I appreciate your mutual interest with me in concepts that are not expressed in English successfully
Kristendkeller: I am just going to send warm hugs. All things pass, but that doesn't make all things easy. Hang in there.
Knit One Pug Two: I don't know the "way with words" podcast but I have a feeling I should put it on my list. I love the history of weird phrases, for one thing. Also, thank you for being the person who reminds us that "bricking" in terms of technology means "the Iphone went dead."
OnePamela for the link to Oklahoma School for the Deaf's free ASL classes online:
