NH Knits Ep 064 - Catalog of Folly

Posted by nhknits in Uncategorized

Welcome to episode 64 where I discuss recent slip ups caused by basically not thinking and being a bit cavalier about my knitting. I have a realization that I might be becoming a bit of a product-knitter-monster, all this while I talk about my one Finished Object and several WIPS.  There's a coop cast update, a prize announcement for reaching 1000 members on Ravelry (yay!) and of course a Woolly Thistle update.  Thanks to lochnessknitfest.com for sponsoring this episode of NH Knits. Enjoy!

Posted by nhknits in Uncategorized

Hello friends, this week the podcast is full of information about NH Sheep & Wool and the podcaster meet up.  Also there's a lot of chat about what's on the needles, not so much about what's off the needles.  There's a tense Coop Cast and a visit to the Piggly Wigglies.  There's lots more blether besides.  Time to put the kettle on and get your project du jour, put your feet up and visit with me.  Enjoy!

NH Knits Ep 060 - Interview with Rowan Tree Travel

Posted by nhknits in Uncategorized

Hello! This episode is an interview with Heather Radl, owner of Rowan Tree Travel.  Heather reached out to me a little while ago because she is a NH business focusing on knitting trips to Scandinavia, the UK and other great knitting destinations.  I was immediately intrigued and wanted to learn more.  I hope you enjoy the show as it sprinkles you with a bit of wanderlust.  I'll be back with a regular episode soon! Claire
