Stash grooming - Episode 182 - The Knitmore Girls


Listen here:

This week's episode is sponsored by:
 So we’ve addressed the issue of dry, cracked, angry hands. The unparalleled Lo-Lo Bar by Bar Maids does a great job healing and protecting skin and making sure we feel pampered. But even the most amazing moisturizers need a helper sometimes. Cuticle Intensive by Bar Maids is like the jelly to Lo-Lo Bar’s peanut butter! The applicator is so easy to use that you can literally put it on while sitting at a traffic light. The tube last longer than it takes to make a brioche bedspread!  This incredibly effective cuticle cream takes your irritated cuticles, infuses them with sorely needed moisture, and solves the issue of peeling, sore fingers in a snap! Simple application, no rubbing necessary, no problem! Fingers rejoice!  

Entangled Magazine is a magazine for all fibrecrafters and brings you inspirational stories from around the world. If you enjoy the in-depth thoughtful discussions the Knitmore girls have about fibre, you will enjoy the articles in entangled. Entangled is independently published and you can help make their story a success. This week is the final week of their indiegogo campaign, where they are offering amazing rewards in return for your donations. Check out the indiegogo page to find links to free articles and our free preview issue!

Purlescence Yarns is the Bay Area's destination yarn shop. From the best in spinning and weaving equipment to luxurious yarns and fibers, we have what you need to make your fibery dreams a reality. We're always happy to provide mail order service for Knitmore Girls listeners. Call us today, it'll be on its way! 

Stash is the Willamette Valley's newest boutique yarn shop, located in
beautiful downtown Corvallis, Oregon. We feature high quality yarn and fiber from
the Pacific Northwest, as well as a variety of knitting and spinning
classes. This June, Stash is pleased to welcome the one and only Brenda Dayne of
Cast-On to our shop.  Brenda will be teaching her amazing toe-up sock
recipe, which features the best-looking, absolutely easiest, short-row
method for toes and heels ever invented. (Brenda would know; she’s tried
them all.)  Join us afterward for a book signing event from 5-7pm.
Last but not least, come sample our local wares at Black Sheep Gathering in building 2, booth #12.
