EP 022 Stash Buster
This week on the New to Knitting Podcast we talk about Stash Busting. Confused? You’re not the only one. Host, Kayleigh tries to explain different ways to use up that stash of yarn to her husband, Brian, who knows nothing about yarn or knitting at all. Chaos ensues. No not really but Kayleigh talks about yarn and Brian interjects with nonsense to make her lose her train of thought. It’s all good, because you will laugh along the way with them. This week's News Desk features an instagram account that has caught Kayleigh’s eye, fellow Missourian Carina Spencer https://www.instagram.com/carinaspencer/ We can’t leave the podcast without having a secret knit! This week Brian pretty much nails it!

EP 011 Over My Head
KAYLEIGH and BRIAN are not only wife and husband; they are also the hosts of the New to Knitting Podcast. Kayleigh, the knitting enthusiast, wanted to start a podcast for those people who are like her, new to knitting, and wanting to jump all in. But for a newbie just trying to navigate all of the sources out there, it can be overwhelming and filled with insider slang, acronyms, and technical terms. This podcast tries to help people navigate through all of these great resources while also being a confessional on new knitter mistakes that we can all learn from. Brian is the producer and cohost that keeps Kayleigh on her toes by making sure she doesn’t tumble into the same pitfalls of using those same acronyms and technical terms that made her feel excluded when she began knitting. He also knows NOTHING about knitting and interjects his novice viewpoint. This week we talk about Kayleigh's first finished shawl, new yarn from Iceland, news desk, and Brian's secret knit!!!

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.
