Episode 38 - All My Girlfriends

As you may have read on plurk or ravelry, I am in Dallas with my family. My dad is still not doing well, so please continue to pray for him.

So…instead of a regular episode this week, which I am not up for, I thought it would be fun if all my girlfriends (and guy friends too) played podcaster this week! I would love to see your videos of what you are up to! Just record a short video and upload it to the Ravelry thread. Funny pics would also be greatly appreciated.

Warning! I have been crying all week so you better not make me cry or I will hunt you down!! Funny, people, funny!
Much love, your knitting girlfriend Carolyn!
