Thank you so much to all of the sponsors and participants. I am so happy to have had so much excitement around this KAL!

In case you missed it: I RAN A MARATHON!!

Listen up for a brief recap of my marathon experience.


On this episode I talked only about books I have finished recently.

Life has slowed down considerably since my marathon. I am enjoying the time with friends and family, and of course, the extra knitting time!

Hopefully this means the podcast will be back on a more regular schedule!
