We are drawing prizes for random people on our Ravelry group membership list as we begin to wind down the podcast.  We've had a great 5 years but at this season in our lives, we just don't have the ability to keep recording.  Stay tuned for the final episodes as we give away all the prizes we've amassed to our loyal viewers.  And check the end of the show to see if you are one of the 11 names we drew this week.
