Episode 45: A Hat and a Blanket

This is where I record the eleventy billionth knitting podcast.

On my blog: www.myso-calledhandmadelife.com
On instagram as @mysocalledhandmadelifehttps://www.instagram.com/mysocalledhandmadelife/
On ravelry as mamatronic:

My questions for you: 1) Like last week, I still want to know how you guys have, or would like to, “spend yourself on the hungry”, “Help the poor wanderer”, “or relieve the burdens of the oppressed?”
(taken from Isaiah 58)

and 2) Do you find yourself saving things, like special yarn or something you consider really nice, and not enjoying it because you see it as too nice for everyday or maybe you keep it from yourself until you seem “ready” for it? Or maybe I’m the only one.

3) What are some very accessible, very affordable projects you like?
