Episode 145 - Knitting friendships

We're baaaack! :) And so excited to be here. Thanks Helen Stewart and Andrea Mowry for helping hold down the fort during our summer activities and travels. We do hope you enjoyed episode 143 with Helen Stewart, and episode 144 with Andrea Mowry as much as we enjoyed recording them. (Hint: we had a lot of fun recording both!)

Gayle and I are finally back in the same room (okay, back in the same car for recording purposes) and we can't stop smiling. When we listened to the episode before releasing, we both commented that we sounded like we recorded the whole episode with smiles on our faces. Yes, we were that happy to be knitting and talking and sharing our knits with all of you once again.

Though our friendship started independent of knitting, it has been forged through the projects, the search for the perfect yarn for each project, our travels, and of course, through podcasting. This episode, we share the story of another friendship brought together by knitting that has taken another creative path. We share a fun friendship-inspired collection of patterns called Minnesota 52: 16 Knits inspired by the road. We hope you will enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it!
