It is so cool that I live in a place where not one, but two friends who are also knitwear designers live. Not only that, they are down to do a YouTube show with me, and even more uniquely, both of these designers, Leah and Allyson, are both putting out independently published, crowd-funded books right now. Allyson’s book, Midwestern Knits, just launched on Monday, and the Kickstarter campaign for Leah’s Great Northern Knits launches September 9. Needless to say, the new episode of YarnTalk that went live this morning features a special segment about their shared experiences pursuing indie publishing projects. Fascinating!
My solo segment in this episode is all about some super rad makers who have found a way to convert actual, real-life brainwaves into two-color, knit scarves. I don’t even think I need to say “nerd alert!” anymore when it comes to YarnTalk segments that have to do with math and science. It’s pretty clear at this point how much we love talking about the overlap among yarn crafts, math and science! ;)
