Episode 42: WTF, Ravelry?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to ongoing accessibility issues with Ravelry and whilst designers and dyers are in the process of establishing/updating their own websites or alternate selling platforms, this post and posts going forward will not include full links. Yarns will be linked to sellers’ websites, and patterns in the meantime will instead include the Instagram handle of the designer. Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience. As we detail in the episode, we are appalled by the way Ravelry is ignoring serious accessibility issues. – Cia

This episode – after a slight and unintentional hiatus (raising children and finishing up a thesis during a lockdown doesn’t leave for much recording time!), we have a very brief 5 year podiversary chat, we discuss our excitement for the Quiet Queers Craftalong, and our absolute disgust at the way Ravelry has responded to genuine concerns regarding its latest update.
