Episode 18 - Hello September

September is here, the kids are back in school, and we are roving podcasters no more. Don't get me wrong, we love summer, but there is something comforting about returning to our usual recording spot (my dining room table), with its usual comforts (available internet connection, drinks, bathroom). In this part of California, September is usually one of our warmest months. Though we aren't feeling the fall knits yet, we both have an eye on some new and new-to-us patterns and fantasy knitting projects. Our stalking segment is full of possibilities. Our knitting presents us with challenges. Our finished objects hold both happiness and heartbreak. Just another week with The Yarniacs! Enjoy.
