Episode 48: Gnometastical!

November 3, 2012 at 12:23 am 3 comments

Thank you for joining us for episode 48 of Just One More Row!

This episode is sponsored by GnomeAcres.
At GnomeAcres, our gnomemade and nerd-flavored yarn & fiber say everything about what we love. With colorway names like Bertie Bott’s, 221B Baker Street, I Dream of Zombie and Dean Winchester, you’re sure to find something for every geek on your shopping list this holiday season.

We offer everything from lace weight to bulky weight yarn, including sparkle and tweed yarn bases. We also just added knitting needle gauges and WPI gauges that would make great stocking stuffers.

Looking for holiday yarn? Our gnomes have been busy creating 11 amazing holiday colorways for you to choose from. Each item you make from a holiday yarn purchase can be used in our Holiday Knitalong contest that runs from November 1 to December 27.

To see our full gnometastical selection, check us out on Etsy at GnomeAcres.Etsy.com. You can also find out more about what surprises we have in store at GnomeAcres.com.

Announcements:
* It’s our two-year podiversary! To commemorate the occasion, we are starting a new contest: what is your favorite JOMR moment? There will be 2 winners, picked by RNG, and each winner will get to pick a colorway from Dana’s repeatable colorways, as well as a base fiber, and will get a skein of personalized handspun by Dana or Brittany! We’ll do our best to accommodate handspun requests, but we don’t guarantee a 3ply fingering weight yarn or anything. ;) You have until midnight CT on Nov 12 to enter. Thanks so much for all of your support over the last 2 years!
* Last episode’s contest: inspiration pictures! Brittany and Dana’s pick: #43 by RavelJ! RNG: #27 by Shanalines! You both get the Callais pattern by Corrina Ferguson! :)
* Thanks again to GnomeAcres for sponsoring the podcast! Any order in the GnomeAcres Etsy shop that mentions the podcast in the notes to seller will receive free GnomeAcres buttons in their shipment through the end of November!
