🎁The Knit Show: The Handmade Holiday🎁
Holidays are made better when a little something handmade is involved. On The Handmade Holiday Episode of The Knit Show with Vickie Howell we show stitchers how to make their season bright with projects to give and decorate with, plus gift ideas for the crafty types in your life!
First up, we meet this week’s Knit Hive!
Then we head over to the decked out studio (See our pink tree? *swoon*) to hang out with Designer and Co-Owner of Barrett Wool Co, Susan B. Anderson. Susan show’s how to knit the unique, elongated stitch used in the Clover Hat, your go-to gift for everyone on your list -- kid and adult alike!
Next we head out on a field trip to Vickie’s local yarn store, Hill Country Weavers where we get a tour of their gorgeous new space and learn from owner, Suzanne Middlebrooks what her trick is to keeping the business successful for over 30 years!
Later we’re back at it in the studio with Ewe Ewe Yarn’s Heather Walpole who shows a Southwestern take on the season. Her stranded stockings can be brilliantly converted from boot socks to Christmas stocking, by simply changing the needle size and weight of Ewe Ewe yarn you use!
We end this episode, and Season One of the show, with a little something different. Now that we know what us stitchers will make for others, what about what some of us might like to receive? Content Producer, Karin Strom joins Vickie for a tour through a curated batch of fool-proof ideas that any knitter or crocheter will love!
