Episode 81 - Winter sweater weather

Sharlene's self-indulgent yarn from Western Sky Knits
As I sit here finishing these show notes, my eyes are drawn to the window, and the slight promise of rain. If you've been following California news at all, you know that while the rest of the country is experiencing a white winter, in our neck of the woods January passed without a drop of moisture falling from the sky. Extreme drought indeed. So despite the fact that it is a mild 62ºF (16ºC) folks are out and about bundled up and everyone is excited about the possibility of rain. Whatever the February weather has in store for you (that groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, right?) I hope you find a way to incorporate your knits--wearing or making--in a self-indulgent way. Please consider joining the self-indulgent KAL chat over in our group in Ravelry. Enjoy your knitting and stay warm! :)

  1. Gayle, I would be happy to help you with your Dad's sweater zipper. If you haven't found anyone to get the zipper put in I could help you with it. Let me know if you still need some help. xchorse on Ravelry I will be at Stitches if you want to bring it then. Cheers, Marcy
