Podcast Delay til Tuesday

I'm sorry, I had a technical issue tonight. Tried to record quickly to beat the storm, I did, but I didn't pay attention to the fact that I was using the wrong mic and you can't hear anything I say. I have played with the sound repeatedly and can only get it loud enough to be considered "annoyingly quiet".

I will have to re-record the whole thing on Tuesday (Monday night is knit night)

5/9 2:25pm update.... I forgot I talked about Three Ewes Twisted in Fiber. They have two shops. One is the Etsy shop, the other is a ArtFire store. The two shops frequently have different items, as the Etsy shop is where the themed yarn is (past themes have been Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and "love")
