Episode 70: Yarny roadtrip

WIPs and FOs

Because this episode is a little different than our regular format, I don’t have good show notes to post. If you have any questions about any of the projects we talked about, feel free to ask in the comments or in the episode thread in our Ravelry group.

Enabling

We talked about a lot of different vendors from the Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta in this episode. To the best of my memory, these are the ones we mentioned. Again, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Brazen Stitchery
Savvy Skeins
Kimarie’s Knit Knacks

Episode 49: A fair amount of enabling

I’m terrible at keeping New Year’s Resolutions (who isn’t?). I am still trying to consistently post show notes, but sometimes the only way to get an episode published is to just get it up there!

My recording schedule has been a bit wonky lately, and I think I’m going to have to officially change things up. While I like recording in the mornings, it’s not really working with my schedule anymore. Stay tuned!

And now…show notes!

I visited Park Avenue Yarns in League City on Sunday for a meet-up with some local knitters. Local to Houston. None of us live near this LYS, but it was so worth the trip! Park Avenue Yarns is a lovely store with everything you could want! I was like a kid in a candy store! I was mostly good, though, and only bought one treat. The other things I bought were either necessities (some stitch holders and Eucalan) or something I have been wanting to buy but have been unable to find at other yarn stores (bare yarn and dye!). If you are ever in the Houston area and want to go on a yarny adventure, I highly recommend making the trek to Park Avenue Yarns!
