Episode #12 Show Notes

*note* Harry Potter Spoiler is not a real spoiler, just a spoof on knitting and the Harry Potter fervor! At least one listener was mixed up by this!

Sorry for the problems with the first edition! Technical problems involving networking cables that were not actually networked... It's been replaced and only the corrected (thanks, DH!) version is available now.

Mentioned this week:
