Carolina Fiber Frolic was so much fun. Perfect amount of knitting, talking and drinking wine! 

I announced the winner of the skein of self-striping sock yarn from Berry Colorful Yarnings. Check out this episode to see if you won! 

Working on the next KAL, but stay tuned for information about the Knit Your Bit Campaign from the WWII Museum. They have a program where you knit scarves for Veterans. 

Technology Talk-Back: Stashbot

Stashbot is a new app by Hannah Fettig that helps (enables?) you to choose the right amount of yarn for your projects! Check it out and let me know what you think! 


I apologize for not having a new crockpot recipe to share with you. I promise to get back on track in episode 21!
