Episode 9: House Geckos!

Here’s episode 9 of the Yarnraising podcast. Come on down and join the Yarnraising group over on Ravelry.  The giveaway this week is still for thePortsmouth, NH shawl/scarf pattern, so enter in the prize thread in the Ravelry group for a chance to win this great pattern.

Also, please note that on rewatching this video, I realized I totally misspoke talking about what high and low tension do. As Willy Wonka would say, “Strike that; reverse it.”

Abbreviated show notes this week, sorry! If there’s something you want a link to, feel free to ask me in a comment on this blog post, in a PM on Ravelry, or in the episode thread on the Ravelry group. Enjoy some photos from Hawaii!
