This week, I've been working on socks and a shawl.  I've also done some sewing on a notions pouch and laundry bags.  Listen here.

  1. I listened to your podcast for the first time today and really enjoyed it. My question is if there is a link to the sock monkey socks you mentioned. It sounds like a really fun way to make socks and I’d be interested in learning more. Thanks!

    1. The instructions I used aren't available yet, but there's another pattern on Ravelry that's similar. It's the Afterthought Everything pattern by Erica Kempf Broughton.
