2 Knit Lit Chicks

Book Talk Begins at 34:20

Recorded on March 15, 2017


We are hosting a Colorwork KAL starting on March 1, and ending on May 1, 2017. 


Chat it up and make plans in our Colorwork KAL Chatter Thread


Browse our Colorwork Bundle for inspiration. 


Knit anything with colorwork - that means intarsia, stranded colorwork, stripes, brioch, double knitting, or slipped stitches.  We encourage you to challenge yourself. 


Pick a project larger than a mug cozy and you're good to go!


Be sure and listen until the end of the podcast for the winners of the Namaste Bag Giveaway, and to hear the latest news for the NoCKRs Retreat.
