Knitting the Aira Hat by Lily Kate France of Joli House out of a skein of Knit Picks Stroll Tweed Tonal Special Reserve.


Knitting on the new top down tee design. She's knitting the sample garment for this one out of Knit Picks Shine Sport in a bright, clear red named Serrano (like the pepper).

Swatch: Aunt Steph's Bags

Sherri and Tamara take a few minutes to record a short Swatch Episode. As we round into a new year and are still under lockdown, we'll be adding some of these shorter Swatches in between our longer normal episodes.  

In this Swatch, Sherri and Tamara take a little time to review a couple of knitting bags from Aunt Steph's Handmade Gifts. Tamara purchased them in person at Winter Woolfest 2020 in January of 2020 (the last knitting event she attended in person before the pandemic). Tamara talked about her Treasure Bag and Sherri talked about her Project Bag
