Episode 67: Stitches West~it's a party!

Hello Dear Knitters and welcome to our 67th podcast! Kim and Marcy recorded while at the knitting expo, Stitches West, in Santa Clara, California. Marcy's mom, Terry, and good friend, Brooke, joined them and they had a wonderful time and lots of laughs while discussing what they wore at SW and their buying strategies...or lack thereof! Grab your knitting, a bracing beverage and join us.

Episode 67 Audio


What's in our Lesson Plan?

Well, nothing today will resemble an average D2K podcast. We talked about what we wore and how we planned for SW. Amidst all of the laughter and strategizing we mentioned the popular and ever present designers Andrea Mowry and Caitlin Hunter about 1,000 times!

What did we wear?

  1. Marcy's mom, Terry, who is Pansy2horses on Ravelry, wore her 001 Pattern by Veronika Jobe on Friday and on Saturday she wore her gorgeous Wool & Honey pullover by Andrea Mowry. 
  2. Brooke, who is Brookali on Ravelry, wore her Big Haring bone cowl, by Purl Soho on Friday and her Dahlia cardigan by Heather Zoppetti (featured in the Interweave Knits, Fall 2011 magazine,) on Saturday.
  3. Kim wore her Little Bird pullover by Veera Valimaki on Friday and her Tegna by Caitlin Hunter on Saturday. Of course, her outerwear all weekend was her Ninilchik Swoncho by Caitlin Hunter. 
  4. Marcy wore her Dawning pullover by the Berroco Design Team on Friday and her stunning P-rex cape by SoSu on Saturday. 

Kim forgot to take any pics on Friday and so
she took one in her hotel room. She is wearing

What's on our Black Board? 

In episode 68, Marcy and Kim will be in the classroom and share all of their FO's, Wip's and new CO's. Kim will tell us how her 'Finish or Frog it February' went AND we'll hear about how all four women did with their purchasing plans at SW. 

Thank you for joining us! We hope that you're enjoying your knitting and making and we look forward to seeing you in a few weeks.
