Episode 16 ~ Gratitude Abounds & Giveaway Fun!

Hi, Knitters,
I'm back with a new podcast episode and giveaway today. There is so much to share with you but be sure to look at the end of the post for photos of today's giveaway opportunities, you won't want to miss it. Instructions to enter your name in the hat to win are at the end of the post as well. 

Let's dive right in. Here are some links for what I talk about knitting-wise:

The IBK Retreat after class at the University Club

I forgot to mention that at the retreat 34 hats were collected for donation to Halos of Hope! Thanks to Pat, plynn on Ravelry, for collecting and delivering the hats for the group. There is a thread in the Itty-Bitty Knits group for a monthly charity hosted by a member. There are always lots of charity knitting opportunities going on in the group if you are interested.

Thank you to everyone for coming to Madison for our retreat!

Here are the links for the lovely sponsors and donations for the gift bags and door prizes! You are all the best and I appreciate your generosity to no end. Everyone was thrilled and you all helped to make the retreat so special and memorable.

Please click away and visit these talented designers, dyers, artists, shop owners! Please pass on my regards if you purchase anything.
