Episode 121 - Knitting all the Donners

This week we are out and about again. I think this will be a new summer tradition--recording in fun locations. This week we visit the harbor, with some sea lions and you might hear some gulls in the background. We took photos of both of our Donner sweaters, which I just finished, and Gayle was binding off while we recorded. You will hear all about these sweaters on the podcast.

Are you knitting something for our fall KAL? There is about a month to go. Time to finish what is on the needles or cast on something small. Remember, the styling is the fun part of this KAL. Please photograph your garment with a fall look. You can wear the outfit or just lay it out for the photograph. Just make sure your entry photo shows us the whole look. It is so inspirational to look through everyone's outfits and think about the coming season.

Episode 119 - Knitting with the turkeys



This week we record again up in the redwoods with appearances by just a few critters, the mule deer and the turkeys. Neither were much bothered by our appearance and it was fun to sit and watch them before we started recording. We hope you enjoy our occasional "Where are they now?" segment, revisiting knits from the past, including a few sweaters we've given away, a sweater win, and a hat fail. Happy knitting!
