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 focuses on the humble sock - a project that most knitter's are hardly ever seen without in their current work-in-progress line up. Although it may seem simple, the beauty of a knitted sock lies within it's practicality (both to make and to wear) as well as in it's ability to be a blank canvas. Kelley walks you through all of the steps of working a top-down sock, along with a plethoraof handy tips and tricks along the way. As Kelley pauses to reflect on the clever construction of socks, both new and experienced knitters are sure to be inspuired to cast on a pair of socks right away. Finally, Kelley catches you up with what she has on her needles at the moment - this week the goal is all about simplicity and portability, as Kelley reports from a linguistic retreat in La Paz, Mexico!
