Knitorma – Episode 063

Despite the horrific situation here in Portugal, I decided to film today’s episode anyway, but decided against mentioning it during the podcast. For those of you not aware, currently there is a huge forest fire raging through a large area in the center of Portugal that has already claimed the lives of countless people and as yet there is no sign of it being under control. We’ve not even officially entered the summer season and already fires are destroying our forests and people’s lives. If temperatures continue like this, this summer is going to be one of the worst since 2003.
