Episode 26: Warm Up Your Knits

We recorded this fresh out of the Polar Vortex so our topic this month is, Warm Up Your Knits! We discuss different ways to make your knitting projects warmer via stitch options, fiber content, and garment types. Also big news: We’re going to release TWO EPISODES this month! We hit our goal on Patreon for the month of February so that means you get to hear from us twice. (we did have a few people lower their donations after we hit that goal though so now we’re back down, tell your friends about our Patreon!)

Also we had two questions from fans that we answer on the show!

  • What style knitter are the three of us?
  • What swifts/ballwinders do we recommend?

Quick disclaimer: We recorded this episode in February 2019 and are about discuss Nathan Taylor aka Sockmatician. We want to be clear that we do not support Nathan’s recent actions on Instagram or at the Yarningham show. He needs to apologize for the harm he has caused and own his mistakes. If you are confused and not aware of what happened we direct you to our Instagram post with the words “Full Disclosure” in the image. There is an audio disclaimer in the episode that directs you where to skip to if you don’t want to hear us talk about Nathan.
