Why yes we DID say we were done for the year when we released episode 12 but we’re just that tricky! We just wanted it to be an extra special surprise when we slapped you with a CHRISTMAS SPECIAL!
In this very special episode Heidi makes us a cocktail, Leah and I get thoughtful gifts for each other and make Heidi feel bad, we share some holiday WIPs, and there are some majorly hilarious bloopers including Leah and I molesting a dress form, me getting a call from President Obama, and me saying some not so nice things about women in Chicago.
Twin Cities Headband 20% off!
If you’re looking for a quick knit last minute gift I’m offering my Twin Cities Headband pattern 20% off with coupon code YARNTALK20! A little giftie from me and YarnTalk.
It’s YarnTalk episode 12 release day, which means we’ve been doing YarnTalk for 6 months! Holy moly the time flew. In this episode Heidi takes over and films between bouts of flu while I’m sick at home and Leah smartly wanted to stay away from both of us. This is a demanding schedule, man!
Courtney Spainhower’s Caldwell Pullover
This episode totally renewed my love of Courtney Spainhower’s Caldwell Pullover that I’m basically immediately ordering yarn for. So spoiler alert, this is my favorite Can’t Wait to Cast On of the year. Heidi and Leah pick theirs, plus our favorite segments from the show. Heidi also talks about what’s in store for out little show. Check it all out!
Like Heidi says, let us know your thoughts! We’ll be having a YarnTalk season 2 planning session soon and would love to take your ideas to the table. We’re excited to make the show bigger and better and would love your input! Use #YarnTalk to get in touch. Or leave your comments here or at yarntalkshow.com.
Episode 10 (10! I can’t believe it!) is full of fun stuff, including an interview that I don’t do! Leah interviews Heidi and gives great insight into how YarnTalk gets started and Heidi’s journey into this knitting industry. She also talks about all those insanely overgrown sheep running around the internet.
Lynn and I at Knit 1!
I step out of the studio and into local Chicago yarn store Knit 1 and talk to the owner Lynn!
Episode 9 features a bunch of fun things – we venture out of the studio to chat with designer and Midwestern Knits co-editor Carina Spencer, Leah and I talk knitwear over beers, and Heidi explores chainette yarns.
Me & Carina!
I just like to post as many pictures of Carina and I looking at each other lovingly as I possibly can! Here we’re looking at Carina’s Midtown Cardigan, from Midwestern Knits, which you’ve got a chance to win a copy of this week!
