We’re Celebrating 100 Episodes of YarnCraft

September 2nd, 2011

Since October of 2007, I’ve been lucky enough to work on our podcast, YarnCraft, a radio-style show that’s available online and to download. It’s been a wonderful part of my job, allowing me and my co-host Liz to share project ideas, sneak peeks at upcoming yarns, interviews with knit and crochet experts, and more. Over the years, our listeners have told us that they enjoy incorporating a little YarnCraft into their commutes, their morning jogs, and of course their crafting time, and we love that they share their comments, thoughts, stories, and photos with us and other listeners, making it a truly interactive experience.

On September 13th, we’re going to reach a special milestone: our 100th episode. To celebrate, Liz & I have hit the virtual road and are giving interviews on all kinds of topics (and giving away prizes) all over the internet.

Be sure to catch us us at the following places:
