Episode 44: Cute Overload
Thank you for joining us for Episode 44! In this episode, we talk about what’s on our needles and bobbins, FOs, new in the queue, if I was a rich girl, and a discussion about gift knitting for the holidays!
At Everything Old, we love colour! From our juicy layered semi-solids and brilliant hand-paints to our eye-catching tie-dyes and the occasional self-striping; we are inspired by everything from video games to the natural splendour of our home in beautiful British Columbia. Find our fantastic colours on spinning fibre and luxurious yarn bases ranging from lace to Aran weight! At Everything Old you can also find fantastic handmade project bags and original patterns. We have everything you need to get your fibre fix!
