Episode 23: Rising Tide

In this episode, I tie in several segments to the idea of community, especially the mindset of the “rising tide” and what that means for small fiber businesses. I open my latest package from the Elemental Fiberworks Fiber Club and share what I’ve been knitting lately. Also, I need some help with the chart on the shawl I’m knitting; I just can’t make sense of the stitch count! And I announce the winner of the giveaway for the Coffee with C.C. (and Dami Too) ebook.
