Ep. 10 Donna Druchunas

Wow, I fell in love with Donna during this podcast. So much talent in one almost isn't fair.

This capital K Knitter is not only writing pattern books but offering us knitters a true history about what it is we love! Seriously, these books are a MUST HAVE for any knitters library!
OH...I guess I should tell you what books I am talking about huh, lol.

The Knitted Rug
Arctic Lace
Ethnic Knitting Discovery
Ethnic Knitting Exploration

You can read more about Donna and what she is up to on her blog

She also teaches several classes at Shuttles, Spindles, and Skeins in Boulder, CO.

Ep. 9 Kate Jacobs: The Friday Night Knitting Club

Did you read this book? Did you fall in love with Georgia and Dakota? Did you wish that you had a Walker and Daughters Yarn Shop near you? Well, you are not the only one.

I had the privilege of chatting with the beautiful Kate Jacobs about her New York Times Bestselling book The Friday Night Knitting Club, the sequel Knit Two, and her recent book to hit paperback Comfort Food.

Listen to the show and have some of your questions finally answered.
  • Does Kate know how to knit?
  • Did she create any of the characters after anybody she knows?
  • Is there a really a movie in the works?
  • Can we expect more books about the ladies we love?

Ep. 8 The Crochet Side

I got a chance to talk to the wonderfully talented Briana Mewborn of the Crochet Side Podcast and the uber successful the Yarn Side!!!

Have a listen to the show ;-)

Ep. 7 Keep the Fleece

Hi, I wanted to let you all know that I got to chat with Linda Cortright, editor of Wild Fibers Magazine on the podcast this week! Here is the 411.

Have you heard that it is the International Year of Natural Fiber? Seriously, it is a United Nations sanctioned event. How cool is that?

Not sure what that means for you? Well, that is why I am leaving this post :-) In today's world we are all trying to think more green, we are trying to have a better awareness of our carbon footprint and are much more conscious of the global impact we are making vs. just local. Not to mention we LOVE NATURAL FIBER! Put all of this together and we have more than just a Kal-Cal for shopping bags to use at the grocery store...we have a movement for social awareness beyond anything that has been done in the fiber world.

Okay, I am not the most knowledgeable person about this so I went to the person who was! I had a chance to talk with Linda Cortright, the head honcho of the Keep The Fleece organization, about what it is they do and why we should be involved.

Please, go have a listen to the podcast all about these natural fibers we love!

If you want to read more about Keep the Fleece go to their website at and see what you can do to be a part of the Worlds Longest Scarf, Natural Fiber Contest, or the TNNA Benefit Dinner!

Think about putting together a team for yourself and join in the fun!

HEY, If you make a team let me know (leave a comment either here or on Ravelry) and I will give you a FREE copy of my Sweetheart Tunic Pattern (ravlery link) made out of the wonderful Yak/Bamboo blend yarn by Bijou Basin Ranch Yarns!!!!


Ep. 6 Amimono Kimono

LOOK, I have a pattern with Classic Elite Yarns.


Listen to me chat with my friend Jenn about the whole experience :-)
