Episode 11

 The audio for this episode may sound a little different--though actually it might be argued it sounds better!--because we didn't record in one of our houses as Gayle explains at the beginning of the podcast. We recorded in her car while parked in my neighborhood. Not ideal, but a good test for us as it is always good to have options!

In the podcast we mentioned the Camellia shawl by Meg Myers. We also mentioned the Stitch Red campaign. After recording, we realized the Camellia shawl is a free pattern from Classic Elite to promote their yarns for the Stitch Red campaign. If you purchase one of their designated Stitch Red yarns, 5% of the proceeds are donated to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health in support of The Heart Truth.
