Episode 51: Hopeful
Episode 51: Hopeful is about my Hope Sweater, A Hint of Summer, knitting the Graduate Scarf and responding to some comments in Episode 49 that are now over a year old and not so timely.
This is where I record the eleventy billionth knitting podcast.
Don’t forget the giveaway. I’m giving a copy of the Hope Sweater to one of you who answer the prompt below in the first 3 days or so after I post the video. Leave your Rav name or email in comment.

My question for you: Have you ever recycled yarn and re-knit or re-crocheted an item? How did it work out? Any tips? Would you be interested in a recycle and Reknit KAL?
