Episode 215 - Knitting while sheltering in place

Gayle and I are sheltering in place right now, spending lots of time on Ravelry chatting in the forums, stalking, and giving those little hearts. We're both working from home when possible, and exploring online resources for cooking, books, museums, and movies. I hope everyone is finding ways to reach out to others, stay healthy, and support those essential workers who are allowing many to shelter at home. Stay safe everyone and go wash your hands! Happy knitting!

  1. What a nice surprise-didn’t think you’d be able to podcast so I Really enjoyed this one! Some normalcy in all this surrealism. I’m in N.J. and we’ve been under state stay-at-home order-so only essential businesses are open and Driving only by essential workers or essential business. Working from home and working on a buttercup in the evening but had to put it aside to sew masks. Both of you stay well and thanks for giving us a wonderful diversion for an hour. ��

  2. You said you’d put the link to the stress management class here. Would you mind posting it? Thanks for your podcast! It’s one of the best!
