Knitalong Results:

Thank you guys so much for joining us on the knitalong!  We feel like we might have jumped the gun a bit… we might not have the listenership yet or might have picked the wrong time of the year to get a lot of participants… regardless, we had fun and hope those that participated did too!  We plan to do more knitalongs/contests in the future, and if you have any ideas for either or want to be a podcast sponsor/prize donator, please contact us on Ravelry or email us at justonemorerowpodcast@gmail.com!

The winners: Steviebee wins the Erin.Lane project bag, and Micheles1956 wins the handspun yarn by Dana!  Winners, please get in touch with us with your address so we can get your prizes out! 🙂

Discussion: KnitScene Winter/Spring 2011:

  • it is now going to be published 4 times a year- yeaaa!
  • has excellent patterns that fit a lot of different body types
  • on-trend sweaters and accessories while still retaining a classic look (you can wear them again next year without looking really dated- unlike some Vogue and Interweave patterns)
  • how-to articles are always in-depth and provide a great future resource
  • uses a variety of price points of yarn so it’s accessible to knitters of all financial backgrounds
  • good product and book reviews

In short, we’d subscribe to this in a heartbeat!!!

A Small Challenge:

Since February is known as the “Love Month”, we encourage you to focus your energies not just on romantic love, but on showing love to those around you and to your community at large.  Knitting for charity, donating to a worthy cause, or even just opening the door for someone or helping someone carry groceries is a good way to do this.  Be kinder to the world, because it really does come back to you in many positive ways!  We’d love to hear about things that you do that follow along these lines!

A Huge Thank You:

We appreciate your kind reviews and star ratings!  It helps us pop up in searches, and encourages others to give us a listen!  If you don’t want to leave a written review, even a star rating is much appreciated.  Also, we’re going to be taking the podcast down temporarily so we can put up a picture and a description of the podcast, and change our designation into the right category.  If you try to access it and it’s not up, that’s why.  Thanks for your understanding and support!
