Episode 4: Mother Bear, Cookie A, and a Giveaway, Oh My!

Introduce yourself in the Ravelry group!

Here a some things I want to correct/add!
I forgot to thank Susan of the With Pointed Sticks Podcast for giving me a shout out- Thank you!!
I also wanted to add that the reason you want to cut out half the plys of your yarn when doing a Russian Join is to reduce bulk.
Finally, Cookie A's class was three hours not two!
