Here’s episode 23 of the Yarnraising podcast. Come on down and join the Yarnraising group over on Ravelry. The New-to-You Spinalong is over and winners are announced on this episode!

Our current giveaway of a year’s worth of Wild Fibers magazines continues this week, so get over to the prize thread on the group for a chance to win one of three of these prizes! Many thanks to Linda Cortwright for the generous donation.

My boneheaded mistake of the week: During the tool time segment, I keep referring to the cards in my hands as combs. Maybe I need a cohost to keep me honest? When I’m holding cards (the wooden paddle things) I should be saying CARDS. So sorry for the error!
