Special thanks to TwinSetEllen for this episode’s introduction!
We are Knitcrate Ambassadors! Are you the kind of knitter who would enjoy receiving a surprise package of yarn in the mail every month? Then you need to sign up for a Knitcrate subscription.

FiberCrafty’s independently owned shops are stocked with yarn, fiber, project bags, stitch markers and more. With filter terms specific to yarn and fiber, the ability to save favorites, and a secure checkout process, it’s better than a 24 hour fiber festival!

I just ran into @marthaemilydesigns Martha at the @carolinafiberfest! She designed last year’s knitalong (the #SpringDropsCowl) and *JUST* released a new pattern — the #SwishShawl. It’s a beautiful shawl with a sweeping drape that is created with short row shaping. Check out the live story on the Carolina Fiber Fest feed for the chat I just had with her and see that shawl in action. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #carolinafiberfest #carolinafiberfest2019

I have been trying so hard (in vain) to finish these hat decreases on a 16” needle and I finally give up. Time to dig out a longer needle. Can’t decide if I’m stubborn or just couldn’t be bothered to get a longer one. Or both? . . . #stripedominationkal #stripedomination #knitstagram #knittingpodcast #unravelingpodcast
