Episode 106 We’re fully in the season now!

This week I’m talking about the baking, knitting and general brain shift that comes with the holiday season. A book recommendation this week too. Next time I’ll have a whole list of gift ideas.

I’m also beginning to fill the fiber basket in anticipation of the spinning I’ll be doing in January.
