Episode 22 - Dark Friday (parts 1 and 2)

Blip was being cantankerous, so Episode 22 is broken into two parts. Part 1 contains all the knitting and spinning content. Part 2 is a pep talk for anyone interested in a low-consumption holiday.

Dark Friday is explained in Part 2. If you don't want to watch that part, but are curious about the title... Bill and I are turning off all our electronic devises on Thanksgiving Thursday (our computer, but if we had them it would also be our TV, cell phones or tablets) and leaving them off through the following weekend. On Friday, we are also having "no light night" where we'll use candles and lanterns as our light that evening. We're going to spend the quiet time reading, talking, eating great food and playing games.

Part 1: Knitting and Spinning
