Episode 27: Holiday Stalemate
Hi and welcome to the 27th episode of Just One More Row! In this episode we discuss what’s on our needles and bobbins, FOs, New in the Queue, Rich Girl, and do an end of the year wrap up regarding our knitting goals for 2011. Thanks for listening!
Deerfield Creations is a little shop based in North Alabama offering handcrafted tools and notions for knitting and spinning. Every piece made at Deerfield Creations is a unique, one of a kind, work of art. We specialize in handturned Tibetan and Russian support spindles, as well as the signature Temple support spindle. We also create nostepinnes, darning eggs, WPI gauges, hand sculpted stitch markers, handspun yarn, and spindle sleeves. We love creating beautifully elegant tools, while sometimes throwing in a bit of whimsey. If you have any questions about any of the products offered in the shop, Lori will be more than happy to help. Shop updates are posted on Sunday afternoons. This holiday season, Just One More Row listeners will be given 10% off of every Deerfield Creations purchase just by entering an exclusive Just One More Row coupon code at checkout. You can visit the shop at http://deerfieldcreations.etsy.com.
