Show Notes for Podcast Episode 1: So It Begins

May 25, 2016

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Podcasts, 'Show Notes' are the place where all the details of a Podcast are recorded.  Like minutes to a meeting, these contain the details of the projects we display, links to patterns or websites we talk about, and any other relevant details from the episode. We will list the show notes for each episode both here on our store blog, and on our Ravelry group, the Wet Coast Woolies.
