Episode 5 of the Podcast – Quick chat, knits and plant dyes
A quick pre-Christmas episode while I finish up a lot of work before taking a festive break. I talk a little about what I'm knitting and recent experiments with plant dyes.
I'm really excited to have reached 100 subscribers – it's just a start, but means that there are 100 people out there who want to hear about what I'm working on! It also means you can now find me at www.youtube.com/c/marinaskua – if you haven't subscribed already, I'd love you to, or just to give a thumbs up to any videos you like.
If you enjoy the podcast and want to support it, consider buying me a coffee on Ko-fi.
