Episode 103 - Knitting under the holiday lights

Our regular recording time is sometimes bumped by one of our work schedules, which was the case this week. So it was a surprise to me when Gayle texted me the afternoon of our regular recording day to find out if I could meet later that evening. Though it meant finding an impromptu spot to record in the car, we quickly decided to give it a try. It was dark, so we drove down to the harbor in hopes of finding better lighting. What we found was a holiday treat! The annual lighted boat parade had taken place this past weekend and the boats were still dressed in their holiday best! It was lovely to sit and watch the boats bobbing up and down giving us a little holiday light show.

In this episode we share a new collection from Joji Locatelli, share a new yarn we swatched, share
our regular segments and start to think about the new year and our upcoming Self-Indulgent Knit-A-Long 2016. We hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and taking time to slow down and carve a little bit of time for knitting, crafting, and spending time with your loved ones.
