Episode 123

show notes | episode 123

Join me today for some discussion about my current works in progress, spinning, a little bit of design talk, and a review of the awesome DPN and Circular Needle Case from Della-Q!


And of course a little bit of talk about some newly acquired stash and a little bit of swatching!


This month marks 4 years of the Snappy Stitches podcast, and 8 years of me podcasting about knitting and spinning.  It's been a great experience, but like anything, it can't go on forever, and this will be my final episode.


My life has seen some enormous changes over the last 8 years, and over the last 2 in particular with my growing family.  I am finding it more and more difficult to juggle both the production of the podcast/content and my family life.  This is not a decision I have come to easily or lightly.
 

 Thank you to everyone, whether you have stuck through with me since the beginning or have joined me more recently.  Your encouragement, friendship and support have kept the show going as long as it has, and the back-episodes on YouTube will continue to be available.


I would love to keep up with you through my accounts on Twitter and Instagram, and of course Ravelry.  I do plan to continue blogging (and knitting and spinning), but I'm not sure exactly where I will be doing that yet.


Once I have a more permanent online home, I will get the word out through social media and the Snappy Stitches Ravelry group.
