Episode 17-Spring Forward

This week (as in, tomorrow) we will be wishing our way into Spring by talking about some "springy" patterns that have caught our attention and some yarn suggestions for those patterns. Call in or chat along with your own suggestions! Spring means something different to every person, so let us know what it means to you!

Also, I want to apologize for the questionable sound quality of the last show. Normally, we each have our own phone/mic but this past week we were sharing and I don't think the mic was catching us equally. Not to mention we broke into giggles every two minutes. This week should be more like what you've heard in the past, quality- and giggles-wise.

Can't wait to hear your ideas! Remember, Fridays at 10PM now!
Show Notes:

Cynthia is knitting a felted bag inspired by the Candy Stripers Laptop Bag. (Is it sad that I typed Candy Strippers at first?)

Episode 16- A gift for the knitter who has everything

We're back this week with an in person show for K and I. My birthday is this week, too, so we had the idea to talk about gifts that knitters really enjoy. Maybe our list will help your loved ones know what to get you instead of random yarn that you have no idea how to use! Take some time to call in or chat along to give us some of your ideas. We are only two people and we can't think of everything!

Show Notes:

Remember, kids, no podcast this Friday, but we'll return Feb. 19th with an "in person" show! K and I will be in the same town (for real this time, no excuses!)! I'll post the show topic tomorrow or this weekend to give you time to formulate what you want to call in and say!
