Episode 175: Too Many Things at a Time!

This episode will upload March 30, 2024

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 :

Gigi Knitmore— I may fast, but I don’t fast as successfully as people observing Ramadan! And I wish them all health and blessings because I think it’s a very worthwhile experience spiritually. I am honored by your blessing.
