Episode 2.5 - Yarn Crawl Gluttony Continues

Hello, and welcome back! We're so glad you've joined us for episode 2.5.

Dana and Kristi discovered that they really have a lot to say when it comes to big yarn purchases! We decided to add a special Episode 2.5 continuation of the Yarn Crawl conversation because we could not contain our fiber enthusiasm. This episode does not contain the regular WIP and FO segments, but picks up where we left our yarn talk discussion in Episode 2

Episode 2 - Crawling for Yarn

Welcome back! Thanks for joining us for Episode 2.

This week will be a little departure from our usual format. Corinna is busy moving, so Dana and Kristi discuss their Yarn Crawl stash enhancement. There's a lot of that! We have a few WIPs and FOs to mention, but the bulk of this episode will be spent ooohing and aaaahing over our new purchases.

Like most of you, we have full time jobs. So, in order to be able to fully participate in the Yarn Crawl, we decided to go hard for the opening weekend.

The Mission: 10 yarn shops in 2 days.

We had the opportunity to have a few friends join us at various points of the crawl, and it was a lot fun! Below is a list of the shops we went to:

  1. A Tangled Yarn Shop, Denver, NC

  2. Foothill Fiber Arts, Statesville, NC

  3. The Needlecraft Center, Davidson, NC

  4. Knit One, Stitch Too, Huntersville NC

  5. Cottage Yarn, Mint Hill, NC

  6. Tangles Knitting on Main, Waxhaw, NC

  7. Things Remembered Custom Framing and So Much More, Gastonia, NC

  8. Baskets of Yarn, Charlotte, NC

  9. Charlotte Yarn, Charlotte, NC

  10. The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For, Charlotte, NC

Note: We had lots to talk about this week, so we've split this episode into two parts. The second part (Episode 2.5) will just be the second part of the yarn crawl discussion, and will not have other segments like WIPs, FOs, etc. 

All of our show notes are given below, with information and links to what we discussed in this episode. Let us know if you can't find any information you need.

Episode 1 - All Things Denim

Welcome to Episode 1! Thank you for giving us a listen. 

This week we discuss how we like to plan for shopping at special events such as yarn crawls or festivals, which is quite timely since we have two such events drawing near. We also have our regular segments, and we help Kristi with some decision paralysis in "What Should I Make?".

What Should I Make? 

This week Kristi is trying to choose between the following two knitting projects:

We decided that at this time of the year, it would be easier on Kristi’s fragile brain to work on the van Gogh shawl and save the Giggle with a Jiggle shawl for after the holidays. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
