Episode 43 - The one with the crows

As the end of August draws near, Gayle and I record on one of our typical seasonal foggy afternoons.  The start of the new school year approaches and I have already seen both Halloween and winter decorations for sale in the stores. There is still a month left until the autumnal solstice, giving us a few precious weeks to finish and photograph our KAL entries. The discussion on fall colors and how to wear our hand knits has been so fun and thought provoking. I look forward to seeing all the fall looks, hoping to freshen up my own appearance using all the great ideas. If you haven't done so already, stop by our Yarniacs Podcast group on Ravelry and join in the chat.

Gayle and I recorded this episode at a local park, so there are some crows in the background, and a car or two zooming by. It isn't too distracting, and I hope you will enjoy.

  1. I think this is the episode that you mention the Fiber Factor competition. Oh my I wish every podcaster out there talked about it. I found it on YouTube and LOVE it. I gorged and got all caught up and now can't wait for new episodes. Thanks so much for mentioning it.


  2. OMG I just found out you mentioned my "Casual Lace".
    Thank you so much! I feel so honored <3
