Episode 62: Woven Tales

WARNING: I use links to ravelry in this blog post. Note that Ravelry’s recent redesign has significant accessibility issues where people have experienced migraines, auras and even seizures. Please educate yourself on the Ravelry issues if their redesign might cause you issues. The few places I could find links to the same content outside of ravelry, I have added and noted where a link goes to Ravelry. I hope that helps.
