CC Podcast – Episode 34 – The crazy cat lady and the yarn connoisseur!

This is episode 34, and this is a crazy cat episode! So a disclaimer first, if you have cats, they might attack the screen as Binx has a very loud interference! Also I show you all acquisitions I got, my Fibreshare, and all the granted yarn wishes… so get yourself a big pot of tea, coffee or even a bottle of wine, sit back and enjoy this very long episode. The last “normal” one for 2016!
