Episode 33: The Sheep is on Fire

March 15, 2012 at 4:55 am 1 comment

Hello and welcome to the 33rd episode of Just One More Row! In this episode, we talk about what’s on our needles and bobbins, FOs, what’s New in the Queue, Rich Girl, have a quick discussion on FO storage, and a small review of the new Knitty. Thanks for listening!

Today’s episode is brought to you by Unwind Yarn Company.  At Unwind Yarn Company we specialize in beautiful handdyed semisolid and kettle dyed colorways.  We carry a variety of spinning fibers, from beginner-friendly corriedale cross and the luscious tweedy effects of swirl BFL, to the smoothness of Falkland and the poofiness of Polwarth, to the luxury of silk blends- we’ve got something for everyone!  We specialize in both workhorse and luxurious sock yarns, too. We are always searching for new things to add to the shop as well, so be on the lookout for new fibers and yarns in the coming months! During the month of March, Just One More Row Podcast listeners get free US shipping by entering the coupon code mentioned in the show in the coupon code box at checkout. International listeners get half price shipping; please send us a message on Etsy before purchasing so we can adjust the listing for you. Unwind Yarn Company yarns and fibers are available on Etsy and in select yarn stores.

    Re the lavender sachets, my aunt was very allergic to lavender, to the point where she couldn’t go in shops that sold it, or even walk down the ‘smelly’ aisle at a craft show. Just something to think about if you are putting it in with purchases.
