Welcome to Episode Three of the Plutonium Muffins Podcast – Kuruka! I discuss some projects I’m working on, as well as the events I will be going to in the next few weeks. I go through the Monthly Resolutions and talk about a KAL we will be doing in January 2015. There’s also a section on a brief History of Knitting, and at the very end – an explanation as to why I called everything Plutonium Muffins!

“Between now and 12/31, don’t know about you, but my knitting will be consumed with Holiday gifts. So I always need a new project for after the holidays, I will lead a KAL in January. So let’s be selfish and make something for ourselves.
I’ll start a thread for ideas – so look at your queue, scout the patterns for something that you want to make and we’ll do this again.
