SSK Yarners Episode #8 “Hats, Thanks, & Savings”

This is a knitting podcast about three friends, Sharon, Sherlyn & Karyn who share their love of traveling to local yarn shops, yarn buying, knitting, crochet, and free patterns!  We enjoy a glass of wine and tell you all about our latest trip!

Welcome to Episode #8 of SSK yarners (Sharon, Sherlyn & Karyn) not just slip, slip knit anymore!  We are 3 friends on a journey visiting local yarn shops and sharing those experiences with you. In previous episodes, we say “we’re sharing LYS here in our state of GA,” but lately, we’ve been sharing local yarn shops all over the place, from Fla to Canada!!  Also exciting news we have some other fiber related businesses we’ll be visiting and sharing with you in future episodes!

You can find us on YouTube as SSK Yarners, Ravelry as SSK Yarners, Facebook under groups as SSK Yarners and SSK_Yarners on Instagram.   Today it’s all about HATS for Veterans and a great BIG Thank you!  We have special savings from a few of our favorite businesses…but first let’s find out what the three of us have been up to. We have been collecting HATS, HATS, and HATS for a great organization called Hope for Veterans. The chapter in New Jersey hosts and event every November called Stand Down.  It supplies goods and services to veterans and their families who are in need.  We asked you, our wonderful knit and crochet community, to help us collect hats this year for the veterans and WOW, you came through with flying colors!  We collected 207 hats, 6 scarves, and 3 pairs of gloves!  So many of the veterans and their families will have hats this winter!

We wanted to thank everyone with some very special savings.  We have some great COUPON CODES from our favorite shops!  Be sure to check out this episode before the coupons expires!
