2 Knit Lit Chicks

Recorded on April 12 and April 15, 2018

Book Talk starts at 36:50

 

Our Never-Have-I-Ever Sock-along will continue until May 15, 2018.  Make socks like you’ve never made before - try a new heel, using a pattern if you usually stick with vanilla, knit from a sock blank for the first time, do color work - or maybe try socks for the very first time!  Please go to the Never-Have-I-Ever Sock-along Chatter thread to join the fun.  Post your finished socks here.  

 

Get ready for our summer swap, hosted by the wonderful Sandra (SweetSerendipity37).  Check out this thread and vote to let Sandra know you’d like to participate.
