W O O F.

I have been less than enthusiastic about knitting this August. Mistakes have been made, kittens. So many mistakes—mostly ones of my own making, so do not feel too sorry for me. You knit recklessly, and sometimes your choices will come back to bite you in the butt. As a result, I forgot to fully document exactly how much I knit before frogging out a very long term project…and August’s tally is a bit lighter than it aught to be.

It’s hurting me. I’m not in a place that I want to talk about it. I played vulgar music at it as I tore it out and cursed it.

I beat that b*tch with a bat.

My only knitting goal for 2020 is to knit something every month…Eh, I did. Check the box off for August 2020, even if I did rip it all out in the final hour of the month.

What about you, kitten? Did you do much making this August? Were your projects respectful and well-behaved? Have you maybe tried out a new craft or indulged in a new hobby? I hope you all are well and keeping yourselves safe by wearing your masks, taking extra care when washing your hands, and keeping them off your face.

012: Caring for Others

Hello, kittens! It’s August and I have some things to share with you today. The first half of this recording has my knitting projects and spins from Tour de Fleece, but the second is a more heavy chat section, covering the Ravelry Problem and veering into a few other topics including COVID-19. Thank you for joining me today!

Apparently I butchered every designers’ name that I mentioned today. Hoo boy. My apologies for that big mishap.
