Episode 80 LIVE: This is what happens when I don’t podcast for a while …

Today, we chatted about new beginnings and changes in our home life. We discovered how I build my spinner’s control cards, my thought process and some examples, as a result of a question asked. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to approach me in the Ravelry group or here! Next, we explored many finished spins from the past couple of weeks which are finished because I haven’t been podcasting! This is what happens when there’s a bit of a break! haha Lastly, I share a new, non-handspun project that is part of our ongoing Stashdown CAL (craft-along) on Ravelry. I hope you enjoy the show!
