Episode 54: Destination Rooftop

cover54This episode includes the following segments: Ever-expanding Skill Set, The Back Porch, and Yarn Lover at Large. I hope you enjoy this week’s interview with Laura Nelkin. Visit the Yarns at Yin Hoo Ravelry board for a chance to win a copy of Laura’s book Knockout Knits. There is one week left to post a photograph of your finished object in the Asymmetri-CAL, an asymmetrical garment and accessory craft along. And, I continue my Bulk Bins Cook-along adventures with barley this month.
