SSK Yarners Podcast Episode #2

 

Thumbnail2

In Episode #2, “There’s wine in them there hills,” we talk about three local yarn shops (LYS), The Whole Nine Yarns, Woodstock, GA, Trillium Yarns, Morristown, NJ and The Yarn Attic in Hillsborough, NJ.  Three amazing shops with a wealth of knowledge and TONS of yarn to choose from.  If you live in the area of any of these shops don’t hesitate to visit!  Well worth your time and $$.

In between all the laughter and wine we share some of our favorite knitting tips and tutorials in all our podcasts and this episode features Sherlyn’s tip of using a bread tie to keep your yarn tails organized.

We are starting the Hitofude Cardigan and have created a knit along (KAL) and hope you can join us in making this beautiful knitted garment.  If you have done this project in the past, we would love to hear any tips, tricks, and comments you have for us.  We have created a thread on our Ravelry groups page.  If you’re not familiar with Ravelry there’s a link below you can follow.  It’s a free sign-up where you can find all sorts of patterns, people, groups and so much more.  When in Ravelry go to the “Groups” tab and look up SSK Yarners and join our group! https://www.ravelry.com/account/login
