Episode 45: Unrepresented

In this episode, I share a fun shirt that I got as a gift. Speaking of gifts, I have two more finished items, which completed all my gift knits for the year. I also finished my Q4 KAL shawl, which also qualified for the Indie Design GAL; the shawl was designed by a designer who has been “unrepresented” so far in the GAL, which leads to a discussion about what unrepresented means overall and what it means to and for me. What I’m knitting brings out two projects from hibernation while what I’m dyeing brings two bases to a close. I share a few thoughts on the Doctor Who Christmas special and talk about the importance of listening to music. The theme for the first quarter KAL/CAL for the podcast is announced, and I answer a series of related questions from the Questions for Karen thread. It’s a jam-packed episode!
