Episode 11- Oh, Baby It's Cold Outside!

We tried to do this show a few weeks ago, but traveling and last minute doctor's appointments messed up the plan. However, we still have babies coming into our lives, and you probably do too, so we're trying again!

Call in or chat along with us as we mention some of our favorite baby patterns, the projects we've done in the past/are currently knitting, and you tell us about your favorites!

Note the special day and time of this show: SUNDAY January 10th and 8PM. (K is traveling, so she won't be at the computer Saturday.)

Can't wait to see you then!
