Congratulations, Gladys! You are the winner of our Baywood Yarn sportweight superwash merino in Harvest. Her dyer pick was Rabbitch in BC. Thanks, everyone, for playing! Now we have a great resource for indie dyers. Hurrah!
Contest Enter our contest by May 29th for a skein of Superwash Sportweight Baywood Yarn in Harvest (in the episode photo)! Leave a comment with a link to your favorite "local" or "small" yarn dyer. We leave it up to you what is local and/or small.
Thank you Sudha & Saloni! Thank you, Jocelyn! Thanks to all the knitters who came to meet us at 9 Rubies! Thanks, Barbe!
This week we completely unravel, explore organic cottons, read about alternative fibers, and you help us destash with knitting techniques. And no, we did not record this episode in the bathroom (we were trying out our new mic and will continue to work on it).
Unravelling thanks to Ravelry We reassess our UFOs and bring our stashes up front.
Ravelry, again. (We know Ravelry is not open for the masses yet, but Jess and Casey are signing more people up every day. Put your name on the list, and, eventually, you'll be on!)
Helen Kim of Urban Knitting Studio, 320 Fell Street We talk to the charming Helen Kim about living the dream, her method for working with clients, her thoughts on organic knitting, and her favorite yarns.
Jenny Check Jenny learned to knit in 2005 and now knits to the exclusion of her personal hygiene. Her husband wonders how long this "knit from your stash" charade will continue.
Nicole Nicole (aka Big Sister) is a librarian who knits. Or maybe a knitter who is a librarian. When she's not knitting on the bus or in front of the TV or at lunch or when chatting with friends, she is, well, that's pretty much it. Knitting.
