Episode 86 LIVE: Merry Holidays!

Thank you for joining me this month! Each year, I take a couple of weeks in December to spend time with my family and re-charge for the new year. This is the last show for 2017 and I want to take a moment to say thank you for an amazing year & I look forward to what we can create in 2018! Thank you for the ongoing support from our Patrons – this month, Linda will be receiving a calendar from me. Today’s show focuses on the end of our #zerotohero2017 and I give away some big prizes. Did you win? Thank you for your entries and to those from the Patreon community for provided prizes. Your contributions and pay-it-forward attitudes are wonderful. I share a finished spin – sadly, the last SweetGeorgia Yarns’ club fibre was this month and while there are some fun things coming down the pipeline, I’m sad to see it end! I chat about spinning directly from the braid, rather than un-braiding and prepping ahead of time. And I share some Christmas knitting I’ve been working on my for niece and nephew. Have a wonderful holiday season!
