Knitting Butterflies Episode 5 – 2013 in Review

Thanks for listening to my last podcast of 2013! I hope you enjoy it 🙂

**Before I get messages saying that the dates of the Ravellenics and Podcaster Throwdown are right next to each other, don’t worry peeps, I got this. I tried to record a revision like 3 times but it never turned out right because I had kids jumping around everywhere behind me. I’ll explain my revisions in the next podcast.**

Thank You’s:

Photographing Your Knits

  • This week I share my philosophy on why it’s important to photograph our handmade items. Even if all you can do is snap a quick photo in awful lighting, always, always take the photo.
