This week Kathy talks with Benjamin Levisay, President of XRX Books and Knitters magazine and host the Fiber Hooligan Podcast.
Benjamin talks about his podcast and wonderful guests as well as his work with Halos of Hope.
Ready, Set, Knit! Listeners get ready for a challenge! The KnottyGirls Knitcast issued a challenge and started the Ravelry Podcaster Throwdown. They claimed that their listeners will turn in more hats for Halos of Hope by the end of Stitches West 2014 than any other podcast out there. You all know that Kathy has a competitive streak a mile wide and can’t resist a challenge! Steve has even stepped in and said that he will ship all the collected hats to Stitches West! Here’s what you need to do:
Make as many knit and/or crochet hats as you can (check here for preferred fibers and free patterns) and get them to us by February 1, 2014. Make sure each hat and package is labeled with “Team RSK!” Please mail all packages to:
We are no longer accepting donations of hats – please send all hot donations to
