Episode 324 - Vacation knitting

Traveling this season? Sharlene's favorite tip is the reminder to pack your dental floss. That little cutter in the dental floss case works on yarn just as easily as the floss. (You're welcome! 😎)

And a reminder that the annual Colors of Fall Knit-Along starts on or about June 20, the day of the June Solstice in your area!

Gayle's vacation knitting includes:

Loose Socks by Casual Fashion Queen

Various hats

Sweater knit in pieces

And now, a blast from the past.
Specifically, our past! Some vacation tips from baby podcasters Gayle and Sharlene. Fortunately, these travel tips still hold up, and we thought we'd share again. Enjoy!

Vacation, all I ever wanted
Vacation, had to get away
Vacation, meant to be spent alone
