Audio from the YouTube Live podcast 5/25/17...

Join me LIVE to discuss preparing your woolies for their summer's nap. I'll share my moth-fighting story from the end of last summer (now that the trauma is ten months behind me), plus lots of painful lessons learned.

 

Apologies for the naughty word late in the podcast, but moths are the worst!

Are you knitting along on An Aran for Frederick? Today I'm sharing some tips on sweater knitting that will help you successfully create your own hybrid yoke Aran.

If you have questions, comments, or just want to let us know "I'm in!", join us over in the Ravelry thread: http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/kathleen-dames-design/3545217/

Don't yet have your own copy of An Aran for Frederick? Purchase your copy here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/an-aran-for-frederick

Prefer An Aran for Anne (the sweater Kathleen is wearing)? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/an-aran-for-anne

Premium Cable is coming soon, so be sure you are subscribed to The Sweater newsletter to be the first to know when it is available: http://eepurl.com/bKrYOz

In whatever way you came to this podcast episode (and the KAL), thank you so much for being here. Many of you joined us through the #strongertogether and #knitterspayitforward hashtags when I gave away thousands of patterns in November to put some good into the world. I hope that you are joining me in doing just that in whatever way you can. Each of us knows that piling up those stitches/deeds leads to wonderful things, so keep up the good work.

Happy knitting!
xoxo, Kathleen
