I’m a serial maker of podcasts, and many things that are not podcasts. I love playing with yarn, fibre and cloth. I will never accept that furniture in my living room only goes two ways. Almost every night, I dream about houses.

    Hi Brenda,
    I found you through Kristy Glass and Patty Lyons and am so glad! I love your voice, your sharing of the knitting adventures and the music! I have made a playlist of the songs you use on your podcast and listen to it on repeat.
    Lovely greetings from snow-covered Czech Republic. Adéla

    Thank you, and thanks to your listener who asked about hibernated projects that won’t fit any more. I too have a sweater I started 3 Springs ago. I’m halfway finished with the 2nd sleeve (and everything else is done). I don’t think I misjudged – I’m pretty sure I gained weight (and probably should have made it a bit bigger). And now I will finish it, log it into my Ravelry project page, and pass it on. Thanks again for helping with that decision.

      You’re welcome, Lessa. I think donation is a great way to go.

    Listened to your podcast and was interested in joining clubhouse. But says you need an invite to join from an existing member

      There are two ways to join Clubhouse. You can join via invitation. Users are given two invitations a week, so ask your friends or family to keep you mind. Or, you can download the app, and create an account, and you’ll be added to a waiting list. I hear it takes about a week or ten days for approval.

      Hope to see you there soon!
