Ask Me Anything

In this episode I answer a question from CrochetbyChineka about train/commute knitting tips.

I mention a bag I bought on Amazon that sits on the floor of the train (that I don’t mind if it gets dirty). It was a great deal and has served me well. Here is a photo of my 2 bag system.
