Technical Difficulties

Okay, so here’s the deal….I have episode 31 recorded and ready to release but I have used up all my free GB space so I can not finalize the process for downloading. I am trying to figure out another way to get my episodes out for your viewing pleasure. Stay tuned! I hope to have a solution before Monday.

In the meantime, for anyone interested in the Spring Shawl KAL, please visit the Knitting Dish Ravelry group thread for details.

Thank you very much for your patience!!! Happy Easter!!! Happy Spring!!!
