* I created graph paper in excel by sizing the rows and colums until I got a graph paper grid.

Episode 5

Rachel finds some really nifty knitting accoutrements while Natalie once again contemplates knitting socks after a long hiatus. Crocheting with wire turns out to be quite fun and yields gorgeous results. We take a look at knitting with plant fibers and chat with the Naked Sheep lady (a.k.a Cheri).

Crochet Chat:
  • Crochet with Wire by Nancie Wiseman
