Episode 5 - Show Notes

Finished Objects
Hermione's Everyday Socks - finally finally finally finished (although, I still haven't added a FO picture yet, I'm pretty sure as soon as I was done, I wove in the ends and stuffed them in my sock drawer cause I was so frustrated with them.  They needed time out.)

I am so sorry about my neighbor's bird.  You can hear him pretty regularly throughout the entire episode, but he's especially bad during this segment.  He's a rescue and their trying to get him to adjust and he's having a really hard time.
