Episode 69: Knitting Weather!
Thank you for joining us for Episode 69! For the month of September, we are proud to be sponsored by Tangerine Designs.
Accessories for the Fiber Lover are the focus at Tangerine Designs. From Project bags, needle gauges, and WPI Tools to all sorts of Fiber Flair! Project bags come in fun fabric combinations – sometimes Geekery! – with no exposed seams!
Tangerine Designs bags also come equipped with a cord lock to keep your project secure and a side clip for storing stitch markers, clipping to other bags, or attaching to a belt loop for on-the-go knitting. Find the newest project bag shop updates on every other Sunday at 7 p.m. Central. For those in the St. Louis area, come see Tangerine Designs on September 28-29 at the StrangeFolk Festival in O’Fallon, IL. For the latest news, visit Tangerine-Designs.com !
