    Woody Alert [ravelry]

    All he touches turns to Cashmere[ny times]

    If you are reading this it’s probably because you care about the show and are wondering about the gap between episodes. Well, knitting keeps having to take a back seat in my life to my job and other professsional development. Sadly, in the time since we recorded this so much has gone down in Boston, including Windsor button closing and Mind’s Eye going up for sale.
    We will continue to record, probably monthly for a little bit, but we want to work this out and make a great show that we can be proud of. So please bear with us.
