Book Club
  • In episode 143 we will continue Section 3 of The Knitter’s Book of Yarn: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing, Using, and Enjoying Yarn by Clara Parkes. We will discuss Cable plied and Textured yarns. We try to host book club so you don’t need the book to enjoy the discussions but this book is such a wealth of knowledge we highly recommend it!
  • We are nearing the end of the our current book club and are looking for suggestions for the next book! We try to choose a reference type of book that will have broad appeal to many knitters, can be broken into segments and is readily available. If you have any suggestions, please email us! info@unravelingpodcast.com.
