I finally got around to making another video! With the weaving bug, the video bug came back. Since I’m starting a new learning process, how fun would it be to document that journey with some videos? I’ve gotten lots of joy in recent years from crafting podcasters, so for me to share my process by … More A Priest Crafts: Season 2, Episode 1: Beginning to Weave

I have loved Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light for ages, and the Copper Corgi sock yarn was the perfect companion … More Strodie is Naughtie
