Sherri and Tamara take a few minutes to record a short Swatch Episode. As we round into a new year and are still under lockdown, we'll be adding some of these shorter Swatches in between our longer normal episodes.

That's Entertainment (what we're watching, reading, eating and playing while we knit)

  • Watching Resident Alien with Alan Tudyk (Wash from Firefly). He's an actor pretending to be an alien pretending to be a human...and it's pretty great.  
  • Listened to an actual audio book with no incidents. The Anna Pigeon National Parks mystery series are available to check out at audio books through her library! She finished Deep South (#8) about the Natchez Trace Parkway in Mississippi.
