I’ve been so busy organizing I was late getting this out. At least I’m taking de-cluttering seriously 🙂
This is where I record the eleventy billionth knitting podcast.

Episode 6: People Before Things
My questions for you:
Are you finding yourself caught in a cycle of consumer culture?
What would you say is at the root of your mindless consumption?
Any tips for combatting mindless consumerism in the crafting community and/or in life in general?
Which do you think is the best forum for discussion: Youtube comments or a Ravelry group?
