Podcast 264: Gifted Knits: Advice and Stories

Knit Picks Podcast, Episode 264: Gifted Knits: Easy Care Machine Washable Superwash Yarn

With the coming of Autumn also comes the quickening of the knitting compulsion. Everyone around us needs cozy garments for the burgeoning cold, and with the recent kick off of our annual 12 Weeks of Gifting, where we release a new free pattern every week for your gifting enjoyment, we decided to explore knitting specifically for gifts.

To start, Alison and Hannah talk about easy care fibers perfect for gifts, including a review of all that Knit Picks offers for machine washable yarn. After that, several of Knit Picks staff share gifting stories, both giving and receiving, and we promise more heartwarming than horrifying.

Enjoy!
