Episode 23: Happy New Year!

You can find me on Instagram as sophiexuan and aspringsnowflake, and Ravelry as sophiexuan.

There’s a Ravelry group for the podcast, and you can support the podcast by either buying me a Ko-fi or joining my Patreon community. There’s three levels at the moment but I’m planning to add more once I start publishing my designs!

I also mod in The Craft Bank. This is a place for people who want to pay it forward and donate the cost of crochet patterns, knit patterns, destash yarn or provide yarn support.

The Craft Bank Giftalong
