Episode 19: A Gift for Your Future Self

In this episode, I share my favorite project of 2016 and thoughts on character-driven sci fi. I’ve made a little progress on some of my current knitting WIPs, I’ve been doing a lot of dyeing, and I’ve added a bit to my stash. I also have a new shawl pattern release and some updates on the book I’m currently working on. And in the what I’m reading section, I talk about pre-ordering books that then show up on your Kindle when they’re released: kinda like a gift from your past self to your future self. (Come to think of it, a yarn club is kinda like that, too!)
