Hi, and welcome to the 34th episode of Just One More Row! This episode’s segments include On The Needles/Bobbins/Spindles, Finished Objects & Yarns, New In The Queue, If I Was A Rich Girl, a discussion about supporting indie dyers and where yarn/fiber prices come from, we answer 2 listener questions, and we have some announcements. We are running a contest through the middle of April, so be sure to listen to the episode to get the details! Thanks for listening, and we look forward to hearing from you!

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.
