Feminism

  • Check out the Pussyhat Project if you want to support the Women's March for Washington (happening Jan 21), but can't be there in person!

Business

  • I gave a lengthy update on WOODS - making stories - watch the video for all the details! Most importantly, we're still looking for test knitters so if you want to test knit for WOODS, send us an email to hello@making-stories.com. Test knitting starts in February and we welcome all levels of experience and skill!
  • Q&A from Verena (The Wool Club): As you know, I’m rather new to this self employed life and with Christmas around the corner, I was wondering if you’d share a bit about your take on holidays and time off? Do you still answer emails when you’re on holidays? Do you have any tips on really enjoying some time off without thinking of business related things? --> Excellent question! Listen to the last part of the podcast for my full answer. 
  • Boss Tip: Only one today. Relax

Happy Holidays!!
