Today’s episode is brought to you by KnittinK. What happens when you turn a spandex-loving comic book fan into a fiberista? KnittinK Comic Book + Geekery inspired yarn & fiber of course. Featuring handspun yarns, handdyed yarns in a myriad of bases & handdyed fiber, you name the flavor of geekery, and we’ve done it: Marvel, DC, Image, and Indie. We feature colorways inspired by Dr Who, Dr Seuss, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, and of course Harry Potter. You can find KnittinK yarns and fibers at http://www.dyeknittinkdye.com.
