Episode 19 - Reel to Real

Join us this week as we talk about movie and tv inspired patterns! From Harry Potter to Twilight, Lord of the Rings to The Holiday, knitwear is all over! Whether the patterns are remakes or just inspired by characters, what we watch influences what we knit. Be sure to call in, chat along, or leave us some ideas to include here or on the ravelry group! Don't let your favorites go unmentioned!

Also, we'll be drawing for our 5K download yarn winner! You've still got a few days to enter, so leave us a comment and you're in!

See you all Friday at 10pm!

Show Notes:

Cynthia is knitting Mommy socks, a baby bib, and a burpcloth (her own pattern).

Congratulations to Karli29 who won a skein of Spritely Goods' Spring Tulips fingering weight yarn.  Email us at ekgpodcastatgmaildotcom! Thank you to everyone who participated!

  1. I took the yarn quiz and I'm Shetland Wool! Not sure how accurate it is, but there's my answer! Thanks for posting it, K!
