Knit Picks' Podcast
A podcast about all things fiber. Shows include features on knitting, crochet, spinning, and weaving. Members of the staff of Knitpicks are interviewed about various topics, as well as the general public. Tune in to hear about creative people working in all areas of the fiber community!

This week, Kelley gets a chance to catch up with her long-distance knitting friend Lynne, author of the blog Island and North Country Life. Lynne leads a very intersting and unique life - traveling the world as a lighthouse caretaker, all the while knitting and spinning no matter where she is headed to next. Hear more about Lynne's fascinating journeys as she recounts her past visits to Deal Island in Tasmania, Australia and more recently, Five Finger Island which is located off the coast of Alaska. Leading a life where change is a constant, Lynne shares her practical approach to knitting, organization, preparation and more!

This week, Kelley elaborates on the idea of getting out of your knitting comfort zone. Looking through her past projects, Kelley realized that her projects have become a comforting retreat rather than a challenge to learn new techniques. Hear more about Kelley's goals to help push herself out of her own knitting comfort zone and into new techniques. Next, Kelley reviews a DVD from Anna Zilboorg and a few other books to help inspire your own knitting goals. Finally, Kelley catches you up on her currents WIPs and what she has planned for her upcoming projects.
