Knit Up and Dye Episode 66 - Let's Have a Parade



This is a double length episode (more or less) to make up for the missed week and really short episode last time. I feature a full parade of all my WIPs, talk about the Design-Along, and call for feedback on a Knit-together community building Knit-Pals idea I have, and announce my upcoming Anniversary Sale (Get 30% off everything in my shop May 1-31, 2018 using coupon code: MONKEYTURNS3 or use link to auto apply discount.)
