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.

Plutonium Muffins Podcast Episode Two
I’ve never thought about the direction of knitting being opposite to the direction we read! Very thought provoking…… I think your doing really well with your podcasting. A few months ago I started blogging for the first time and like others have said to me (and I’m sure it’s been said to yourself) it’s just about finding your voice. Keep up the good work.
