Episode 20: Dark October Hangover


Thank you so much for tuning in to the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast! In this episode I share a full recap of my #darkoctoberstitching (including a new knitting start) and what I’ve been working on in November.

SALs:

  • Join Emily (eclecticpossessions) and I on Instagram for #dark13stitching where we stitch on something dark and creepy on the 13th of every month
  • Join the Hawk Run Hollow SAL hosted by Abi Bellastitch and I – on Instagram you can use the #hrhvillagesal if you’re stitching on Village and/or use the tag #letsallmovetohawkrunhollow for any Hawk Run pieces.  Abi set up a Facebook group called Let’s All Move to Hawk Run Hollow if you’d like to join!
