Thank you for joining us for episode 91 of Just One More Row! For the month of August we are proud to be sponsored by Solar Flair Fibres.

**Just a little sidenote, the first five minutes or so we tell a funny little story that is not completely vulgar, but a tad “adult” in nature, so keep that in mind if you listen with children or at work!**

Stash Stories: Jewel Encrusted Head Revisited
Dana: I used to do a lot of buying off of destashes to try to get a bargain… one time I bought a sweater quantity of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (which remains one of my favorite yarns) but it is in this horrid snot color. I keep meaning to overdye it but now it’s not enough yarn for me to knit a sweater with (damn weight gain) so it just sits there. I also have two skeins of MadTosh DK in Golden Hickory that have been in my destash forever. It’s yellow/orange/green and just NOT my colors… someone take it off my hands please!
Brittany: My Wollmeise is definitely a “JEH” colorway. Wanted to see what the fuss was about, and the color didn’t seem *quite* so bright when I ordered it. I will still use it, probably on socks, eventually, or with another color to tone it down. (Moonlight Sonata Shawl)
