Episode 78: 2019 Plans

Welcome to episode 78 of the YarnderWoman Podcast. This episode was filmed on 3 February 2019 in Perth, Western Australia.

This episode does not have the usual segments, as I am discussing both my 2018 wrap-up and my 2019 goals.

The sections of the episode are at the following time stamps:
03:04:14 - 2018 wrap-up
06:00:14 - 2019 goals
12:22:08 - Make Nine
17:34:04 - Charity & Gift Make Nine
18:34:14 - Knit-alongs/Make-alongs


Goals Make-along:

Your project doesn't have to be from a formal "Make Nine" or other list – great if you’ve got such a list, but if not, just cast on something you’d like to make.
Details are on this thread in the Ravelry group:

This KAL will fit in well with some other KALs, and we all allow double-dipping:

Archive-along - all year.  Twisted Stitches & Kill to Craft podcasts:

Stash busting KAL - also year-long:
Shara of What Shara Made Podcast

CableKAL with Marsha (Fairy Little Podcast), Akira (Knitting Annihilator podcast) and Grace (Babble’s Travelling Yarns podcast).

Akira has a thread for Make Nine discussions:

I’ll also be having a year-long charity MAL again as well. The thread is open now.

I'll be mending some items and joining the “Finally Fix It” KAL on the Hey Brown Berry podcast

Happy crafting!
