Episode 63: Punkin’ Head

June 16, 2013 at 7:47 pm Leave a comment

Thank you for joining us for episode 63 of Just One More Row! For the month of June, we are sponsored by KirbyWirby Yarns.

All of Cherie aka Kirbywirby’s “HomeBrewed” yarns are dyed right in her kitchen especially for a knitter, by a knitter. She enjoys this new part of her knitting addiction and her favorite part is sending yarns to other knitters because it is so very exciting to receive yarn in your mailbox. Although her main focus is self striping yarns, she also does handpaints and now handpainted/self striping hybrids! She’s having a ” ball ” doing this and hopes everyone can find something they like. If not, message her on Etsy and she can do a custom order just for you!
