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!

    1. Thanks so much for listening!! I really appreciate it that you took the time to leave a comment :0)

  2. Hi Jessica,

    I started yesterday and listened to all four of the podcasts. How sad that now I have to wait for another. :-) I may just have to listen again.

    1. Thanks Suzanne! You won't have to wait too long- another episode will be out this Thursday :0)

  3. Hi Jessica! I just discovered your podcast & am starting from the beginning. Can you tell me what the name of the closing song in episode 4 is? I know it's been a while & you may not remember, just curious. Thanks!
