Product Review:

We reviewed a new product that was sent to us by Claudia from Fiber to Fabric on Etsy. These are for circ needles and help protect the needles when you put them into your project back. She designed these to help from having her wooden needles snap. They are a very good price and I think every knitter should have 1 or 5!!

Stash Enhancements:

Lynne bought some mini skeins sets from Astraea Meris on Etsy!


Sue found 2 new Canadian podcast to watch which she enjoyed quite a lot.

The Canadian Knitter Podcast with Sarah a.k.a. TrueCanuckGirl who is from the Toronto area, very fun and her husband knits too and I hope he makes an appearance.

Knitting in Stitches Podcast with Moira a.k.a. moclell from PEI, very funny and she did some out takes at the end of the first episode which were quite funny, I look forward to watching more.
