Love the look of lace but intimidated by the techniques? Let Kelley guide you through the process of knitting lace as she goes over the quirks of lace knitting in addition to tips and tricks for successful lace projects. Next, Kelley chats about one of her favorite things to do while knitting or spinning - listening to audiobooks! Kelley gives an overview of audible, an audiobook service, as well as several reviews of recently completed audiobooks she has enjoyed listening to while crafting. Finally, Kelley catches you up with projects that are on (and ones that have recently come off) the needles. In keeping with the topic of lace knitting, Kelley talks about her Elizabeth Zimmerman Pi Shawl that was recently completed. Kelley also chats about all of the lace projects she was dreaming of while blocking her newly finished shawl, in addition to a few socks that are still in progress.

Last weekend Alisha, Stacey, and Jenny attended The National Needlearts Association winter show held in Phoenix, Arizona. This industry trade show is put on several times a year and lets venders, yarn shop owners, and designers connect with each other as well as find new and exciting yarns and accessories. As much as we enjoyed the warm weather and sunshine, we also loved chatting with all of the friends that stopped by our booth! While being around so many wonderful designers, Jenny was able to set aside some time to chat with a few designers that are part of the Knit Picks IDP program including Audrey Knight, Stephannie Tallent, and Sarah Wilson. Hear all about how they started knitting and transitioned into designing in this behind the scenes sneak peek at TNNA!
