Favourite Podcasts I Listen to While Crafting

While I’m also watching some good old-fashioned Netflix when I’m knitting or sewing something, I’ve really become to appreciate podcasts over the past years. In general – but also when I’m crafting!

Completely seasonal knitting

At over 30°C this is probably not the most the seasonal knitting work, but I wanted to finally finish it! It was supposed to be a gift for my mother for Christmas, but a wrist tendinitis threw a wrench in these plans for several months. Typing my PhD thesis kinda ruins my health, huh? Since…
