Episode 27: Some UFOs and a bread-eating skirt.

Welcome to episode 27, pals! It’s a long one – eep! This week’s episode is heavy on knitting content despite the injury I have that has prevented me from knitting. Throw in a bit of sewing and a length S2K2 segment, we’ve got a very full episode. So grab your pointy sticks and get comfy 🙂
