Don’t Forget – next week, on Feb 16th, we will air Show #300! To celebrate we are giving away three $300 gift cards.  The winners will be announced on the show.

Guest: Kathy and Judith talk about the career path that lead to her current book: Knitting Know-How: Techniques, Lessons and Projects for Every Knitter’s Library, co-authored with Dorothy Ratigan.

They also discuss what an amazing resource the book is, almost a master class in one volume. From basic fiber theory, tools and techniques to patterns that not only tell you what to do but why and how different stitches and techniques are used.

And don’t miss out on the opportunity to take a class with Judith and Dorothy! They will be here at WEBS on Saturday, April 6, from 10am-3pm

    I left a message on your blog about people who were looking to donate yarn and it was answered by a lady on the space coast in Florida. I connected with her and we got lots of yarn from her. I knit and crochet with a group of ladies who make blankets for hospice,and. A charity called for children’s sake . They give to needy families and the homeless. All the things we make are from donated yarns. W got the highest award from hospice last year for the most items produced. If anyone reading this has yarn to donate you can reach me at craftsbydonna @aol.com. We would be willing To reimburse you for postage. Thanks ,Donna

    The person who usually uploads our podcast episode each week is still without power due to the blizzard. We’ll post an update once it’s available.

    What a beautiful cover photo on that book! The yarn is so gorgeous. Any idea who it’s by and where I can get it?

  9. peachknits Says:

    Hi Carol, I was the editor for this book. I’m not sure what the blue yarn is, but I can verify that the cream yarn is Plymouth Baby Alpaca Brush Solid in color Latte. I know this because the yarn may have made its way into my stash after the photo shoot…
