MINDFUL MAKING #43 – Denmark July 2022

You are in for a treat.

Fasten your seatbelt and we are ready for take-off for a trip back in time and join me on my on my holiday in Denmark and Norway in July 2022.

Walks on the beach, visits to numerous yarn stores resulting in yarn purchases are the main features of this episode number 43 of the mindful making podcast. While in Denmark I not only got to see my family and friends, I also visited a new knitting friend Tina, to record a podcast together. You can find it here: (it is in Danish)

Grab you project, a cuppa, and settle in. Enjoy.
