Episode 69: Many WiPs, Many Books

Welcome to Episode 69 of the YarnderWoman Podcast!

This episode was filmed on 15 February 2018 in Perth, Western Australia.

This is a longer episode than normal - the last half an hour is devoted to discussing some books I've read lately, on the topics of minimalism, decluttering and simplicity. 

So if you're just here for the knitting, that's no worries and you can enjoy the first hour, as there is definitely lots of knitting! :-)

  • Brooching the Subject - 01:44
  • Finished Objects - 03:44
  • Works in Progress - 14:03
  • KAL/Prizes - 41:50

Spinning Me Right ‘Round:
  • Stash sorting - you can do ‘advanced search’ within your own stash
  • Mental health – let’s keep the conversation going and de-stigmatise mental health conditions, as well as society's common response to those with a chronic illness - the article that gives a great analogy about how some people with chronic illness may / often feel can be found here:
