Thank you for tuning in this week. Welcome to new viewers and welcome back to returning viewers. Particular thanks to our Patreon subscribers, who keep the show on the air month after month! This week, I make a couple of housekeeping announcements for the summer months. I share a couple of knits in progress from my Smith & Ewe SW BFL spins and my speckle-dyed SW wool that I’m knitting socks out of (and a shawl!). I chat some more about my #combospinSAL and reflect on how my hand-dominance quest is going. I ask you whether you ever get tired when spinning and look forward to your comments. Enjoy the show!
