Road to Rhinebeck 2023
Tina has a Yakkin' About Yarns segment regarding Hundred Ravens yarns based in New Hampshire, with a super interesting about page of their origins.

Tina surprised the rest of the cast with black jackets with their sign on names on them. Pardon My Stash will be hosting a small meetup from 12pm to 12:30pm near Gate 1 on the grassy knoll area. They hope for a drop in temperature for a colder festival this year, and what they plan on wearing project-wise. Usually between 10am to 1pm, Drea will post stories on where we are in the festival as well, in case you want to experience it remotely! They also discuss some fond memories and what they are going to be looking for in terms of experience this year. Find out more about this episode and the cast at pardonmystash.com.
Funny with good, practical advice
I just recently discovered this podcast and I’m hooked. I also share an obsession with Malabrigo. I’m making my way through the episodes and appreciate the blog on their web site that lists the things that they used and talk about. I love how much they seem to enjoy talking with each other and being friends and knitting. It’s just a delight. Thank you.
Best Fiber Podcast
I have been searching for a fiber arts podcast for a while, and this is by far the best one! The hosts are funny, relatable, and full of knowledge. I wish the episodes were longer!
The biggest problem
The top reason I reject a podcast is that there is more giggling and laughter than content. This one is so full of that annoyance I got confused about what the topic was and lost by all the insider jokes. So little knitting content and so little time. This one is off my list
