Some of our favorites: Arcadia, Bivalve, Cassian (!!!), SkyBlue, Pocket Pals, Phaeodaria, Cambium

Announcements:

  • This episode’s prize from Dyeabolical: a month of her un-club in the colorway Unbirthday from Alice in Wonderland! To win this awesome prize, please pipe up in the episode 39 thread on Ravelry and tell us: if you could design your own dream Alice in Wonderland colorway, what would it look like? The thread will be locked at the end of the day on 06/28, and the winner will be announced in the first podcast of July.

  • Win a spot in Dana from Unwind Yarn Company and Sarah from Another Crafty Girl’s new yarn club, 2 Crafty Girls: John Hughes Movie Night! To win a spot, go to the thread on Ravelry titled 2 Crafty Girls Club Spot Contest, and post a reply that says “enter me”. Please do not enter if you’ve already gotten into the club; this is a consolation prize for those who didn’t get in (or who didn’t try to get in for whatever reason). You must be a member of our Ravelry group to win. The thread will be locked at the end of the day on 06/28, and the winner will be announced in the first podcast of July.

      Carla, blog comments do not count toward contest entries… Sorry! We only count comments in the Ravelry thread associated with the contest.
