Episode 178 SSK Recap This episode was recorded on my back porch as the weather today is glorious—sunny and cool at 70 Deg F. There are ambient noises with bird song (lots of House Wren trilling) and wind in the trees. If this bothers you just know it is not my normal recording environment. SSK in Nashville is an event hosted by The Knit Girllls, Laura and Leslie. I had a great time and in this episode I share some of my experiences with you. Sister Bay is my new design published by Quince & Co. It a cousin to Piper’s Journey: a crescent shawl also in Quince & Co Chickadee, but this time in two colors. The applied border of texture and lace is knitted on as an applied border. You can find Sister Bay at Quince & Co here or on Ravelry. A Knit Along with Sister Bay starts on July 20th or whenever you like. Prizes will be drawn on September 1, 2014. Details are here and on the show blog.

On November 17, 2013 at 11:05 AM an EF-4 tornado crossed diagonally through our town of Washington IL.  Other towns in the Midwest were also affected but our town was most heavily damaged with over 1,000 homes demolished or rendered uninhabitable.  Our home was not harmed, nor were the homes of my co-hosts, Sarah and Bronwyn.  Bronwyn's home was closest to the path of the tornado. My mother-in-law's home was demolished but she was not home at the time the tornado hit. In this episode I talk about my experience that day and some observations from the rest of the week.

Thank you so much for your many messages of concern and support.

Maine Knitting Pipeline Retreat Information.  November 10-14, 2013.  I also talk a little more about the sweater I finished last week and read a Fourth of July letter that was written to me a long time ago.  I announce dates for a small retreat in Washington IL in the fall (more information later) and also the big Knitting Pipeline Retreat (3rd Annual) March 14-15, 2014.

Retreat information starts at about the 10 minute mark.

It is the 3rd anniversary of Knitting Pipeline.  Thanks to all of you who have supported the podcast!  You have made it all possible as I certainly could not keep going without your enthusiasm and support.  

Registration form and information is here.  You get to mail it in with a real live postage stamp!
