Episode 40 – Melabirthday

It’s Melanie’s birthday!

Deborah’s working on the Seascape Stole and doing even more sewing… but Melanie’s in birthday-mode with some tales of birthday past, some knit-lit, and lots more.

Plus, The Case Of The Ivory Needles (our original radio drama) nears its conclusion. Listen to the first four parts, if you’ve missed them.

Then, the girls bring back a word: cnyttan. Can you help to re-popularize it? (Can you pronounce it?)

The Savvy Girls will be at Vogue Knitting Live in New York this weekend, let us know if you’ll be there too!
