Episode 64 - Here comes summer!

Summer is upon us! School is winding down and the fog has returned to Santa Cruz. Time to think about summer knitting and joining in on the Colors of Fall 2014 KAL, #yarniacsfall2014KAL
We chat about the fall colors, options, and try to narrow down both our yarn and pattern choices. We hope you will join in and have fun with it. Last year, one of my favorite things was seeing everyone's "styled" pics. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

  1. Thank you so much for the nice words about my Surry Hills Cardigan! You made me blush like a little girl! I am new to your podcast but I have found a new favorite! Now I have plenty of episodes to listen to but I love what I have heard so far!

    Ps. My sample is actually knitted in Cascade Ultra Pima DK. Somehow Cascade 220 ended up on top of my pattern page.
