Episode 115 - Knit 1, teach 1

It's that time of year again. What time of year is that you ask? It is when the folks at Pantone release their fall colors list. These are the colors that influence fashion, what will be appearing in the stores this summer for fall wear, and what colors we'll see on the new yarns coming to the local yarn stores. Most knitters love color! And yes, I am including knitters such as myself who happen to love the greys! (Check out that Sharkskin color chip on the palette and how well is goes with every other color. What's not to love about a beautiful grey?) So take a look at the palette, check if you have any of those colors represented in your stash and play along! We'd love to have you join in. #yarniacscolors2016

We also have a short discussion about the importance of bringing new knitters and crafters into our community. As the number of small vendors increase (we see new bag makers and dyers all the time), one of the things you can do to support small business is to bring in new consumers. Teach, enable, and bring someone new into the community. #knit1teach1
