We are going to keep it short this week because we are a day late getting the new episode up! It has been a crazy around here and well… Katie just lost track of time.
The gals talk about yarn today, which is one of their favorite things. When talking about yarn gauges (sizes) The Gals referenced a great chart we found on the Craft Yarn Counsel’s web site. This is actually a fantastic site in general and if you are into knitting or crochet you should spend some time poking around here! Here is a link directly to the chart http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/weight.html.
The “For Dummies” site has a good article about yarn fibers that The Gals used as reference for this episode and we recommend you check it out. We learned a lot! Like who in the hell knew corn yarn is a thing??? http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/types-of-yarn-fibers.html
Katie forgot to talk about her super awesome yarn ball winder that she got for Christmas and didn’t have the time to make a video of it in action so we found this video for you! It is like yarn porn!!! If you don’t have one, get one! You won’t be able to stop balling your yarn (it makes us giggle to say “balling your yarn”).
If you have any questions, comments, or ideas about this episode or the show in general please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We love hearing from you! Don’t forget, you can subscribe to the podcast through both the Stitcher and iTunes free apps and never have to worry about when a new episode is up or not. Next week Sharon and Katie will be back to talk about embossing, which is really fun and awesome… so until then, make some cool shit, yo!
