Episode 3 - Knitting and a Little Stitching Too!

Hey Everyone!  Well, I'm back again.  Something about doing this podcast has really energized me with my crafting!  I love thinking about my projects and yarn I'd like share.  Some of you left comments about missing my stitching, so I decided to pull it out and put a few stitches in some of my more recent wips.  Thank you so much for watching and the support!
