Knit Up and Dye Episode 97 - Bad Math & Pirates



Some bad math has caused issues with the Porch Light design. My sweater yarn order has arrived and all I want to do is cast on. Temptation is at an all time high. Will I succumb and cast on, or will i persevere and finish my design? Also includes a silly gift unboxing, fuzzy friends updates, studio enhancements and the Patreon drawing.

Knit Up and Dye Episode 95 - Not Too Much



Really haven't done much knitting this past week, but I'm on the mend and finally back to working through my design process. I do discuss my experiences with depression in this episode, and offer encourage anyone struggling in their lives to reach out, as well as for all of us to extend kindness to others, as small things can make a huge impact in the lives of others.
