The beginning of November has finally brought us the beginning of sweater weather, and as we delightfully exclaim this episode "When you're cold, you're cold." No apologies for putting on sweaters as the thermometer dips below 68º this episode! In fact, we are rather gleeful to pull our old friends out of storage and welcome them back into our wardrobe rotation. (In fact, though I didn't mention it on the podcast, this editor is planning on wearing her big oversized Traveling Sweater later on this evening at an event.) And can I just add how wonderful it is to have shawls to drape around myself when I feel a chill? It's our season knitters and crocheters and if I have one piece of advise to give, it is this. Wear those knits! Don't keep them tucked away for "someday," or wait for the perfect outfit, or keep them reserved "for good." You invested time and money, so if you've made something lovely for yourself, wear it with pride.
In episode 101 we return to our regular segments and catch up on what we have been wearing, stalking, knitting, and finishing. These are our comfort segments, and as we enter the busy holiday season, it is good to focus on simple things that bring us pleasure and delight. I hope this episode finds you wrapped in warmth, with hook or needles in hand, and listening to your friendly knitting podcast friends!
