Due to technical difficulties with our scheduled podcast, we’re doing something a little different this time; a short interview with pattern and handbag designer Jordana Paige. Since this was our first time recording an interview, there were a few technical difficulties with this one as well, so cast your mind back in time and pretend that it’s still October!

Next time, the girls will be back to their usual antics, with tips, book and yarn reviews and plenty of opinions…

You can find Jordana Paige at http://www.jordanapaige.com/.

The girls talk about their recent experiences destashing, the upcoming retreat on April 14th, the centered double decrease, and a whole bevy of awesome yarns.
