Episode 5: Stories That Endure and Second Book Syndrome

In the past two weeks, I’ve done a fair amount of reading, a tiny bit of spinning, and knitting on several projects. In this episode, I talk about the idea of the monomyth or really about stories that endure through time, how I felt about selling off some of my shawls, how I display/store my shawls, and my thoughts on the second books in trilogies. I also share the first shipment for a fiber club I’m part of as well as some adorable stitch markers I bought.
