Episode 49: Two Wild and Crazy Gals!
Thank you for joining us for episode 49 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.
