Guest:
 Kathy talks with Brandy about her new book, Just Like Me Knits.

Brandy was living in north, rural Georgia and began to fill some of her time by learning to knit and crochet. She co-founded the online knitting magazine Petite Purls based on her interest in designing for her children.  The new book expands that to include matching designs for that special doll.

    FYI I’m pretty sure the zealana yarn with possum is made from possum that is being eradicated in New Zealand.
