Episode 128 - Something a little different

This episode is a little different. We want to chat about some patterns, books, and one kit that have caught our eye over the past few months. Many of these patterns will make items that would be fabulous gifts, or the patterns and books themselves might make great gifts for a knitter you know. There are lots of options! Knowing that this is a busy week for those celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US, we thought it might be a good time for this alternative episode.

Enjoy! :)
