Episode 2: Doing it with Ease

This episode was filmed before I’d seen any feedback on Episode 1.  So, I didn’t get a chance to respond to any comments there.  But I’ll get to it with number 3.

Test knitting, creating boundaries, an unexpected LYS, my first John Arbon, my fancy first design (not), the art of Leon Collins, and digging wells.  There.  Who needs show notes?

But if you do want links to most of the things I mention, they are both on Youtube and at the bottom of this post.

I appreciated the kind words and encouragement.  I live in a home with (sometimes) terse men.  It’s nice to get feedback 🙂 .

Questions for you:  Is there any significance to your first project of the year?
What are you learning to do, with ease, for yourself  that was once difficult?
What are some new podcasts you are watching or listening to?
Have you seen Citizen Kane? Is it the monumental film everyone says?
