Ep 005 Guest Amanda Kaffka
This week we had the amazing pleasure to talk with Amanda Kaffka of The Crafty Jackalope. https://www.thecraftyjackalope.com/
Amanda just published her new book 'The Crafty Jackalope Vol. 1 Yarn' and it is now available through ravelry.com and her website. The book contains a variety of accessories in beautiful neutral shades with pops of color sure to fit every person’s style.
She tells us how she learned to knit from her mom using arbutus twigs at age 6 and later made a career out of knitting.
Amanda shares mistakes that she still makes in her knitting including dropped stitches and not swatching which both lead to having to rip out hours or days of her knitting (OUCH!).
Amanda also shares with us what’s inspiring from her news desk and that would be the beautiful designs of Pickles Oslo. @picklesoslo (instagram)
And of course, listen in as Brian tries to describe one of the designs from Amanda’s new book that Kayleigh test knit.
