Episode 2: FOs galore!

Note: I’m very sorry about the sound quality, there’s quite a bit of sibilance (which is a new word I just learned), that is whenever I make an ‘s’ sound, it’s very harsh. I hope it’s not too annoying, I haven’t found a way to fix it. I will use a different microphone next time.

Introduction and thanks

Thanks to everyone who joined the Ravelry group, all of the lovely people who posted on the forum and sent me messages telling me how much they liked the podcast. I’m so thrilled that you enjoyed it. Special thanks to Tilly of Tilly Trout knits for mentioning me on her last episode!

Episode 1: Hello world!

Heads up: the video is mirrored and I don’t seem to have any way of fixing it! It’s only noticeable when I’m showing you my crafting journal, so hopefully not too annoying.
