Episode 162 - Knitting with Nani

It was a bit of a creature fest when we recorded this week.  Cats and birds making appearances. Partway through the podcast, my bird makes herself known by ringing her bell. And ringing again. I didn't realize the microphone would pick it up as clearly as it did, so for a couple of minutes, please imagine there is a little bird ringing her bell in the room with you. :) She's a happy bird. But never fear, there is lots of knitting content coming your way. Enjoy!

Episode 161 - Stitches and sweater maintenance

This year we recorded little snippets each morning at Stitches West. It was a fun way to recap what we saw and share what we were stalking each day. There aren't many links, but there are a couple of fun stories about our adventures, followed by a discussion on sweater maintenance. Changing seasons  and changing clothes seasonally gives us a chance to wash, inspect, and maintain or pare down our sweater cache. And as you will hear, paring down the sweater cache is necessary, if you keep bringing new and pretty yarns into your yarn stash!
