Hello and welcome to the Hudson Valley Knits podcast!

This is a really long episode as you can imagine. So much to talk about and share about Rhinebeck!

Some quick updates. See the Ravelry group for details on the Senior Love Along. You can mail your washclothes as soon as you are ready and the details are in the discussion thread.

Also a reminder that half the proceeds of my pattern sales are going to SillyFru’s #Crushthesack fund so if you like any of my patterns please purchase now and help Wendy out as well!

I have also started a new KAL and hope lots of you join in. It is the Podcaster Sprinkled With Fru Love KAL and you can find all the details in the chat thread

Episode 28 All The Knitter Ladies

Hello all! Welcome to the Hudson Valley Knits Podcast.

This is a brief Pre Rhinebeck episode

News:

I will be at The NY Sheep and Wool Festival  in Rhinebeck both days and would love to see you! I can’t make the podcaster meet-up because I have a 1pm class but I will go to that area at 12:30 if anyone wants to come by.

Big update on the Senior Love Along! I have set the date with the event person at the Veteran’s Administration Nursing Home in Montrose, NY and we are all set to hand out the washcloths on December 20. I am asking for all washcloths to be sent to me by Thanksgiving. If you can, wrap your washcloth with a nice ribbon so it looks like a gift.  If you can’t don’t worry about it, I have lots of volunteers that will help me with that.

BIG REQUEST: I don’t have enough washcloths. There are 250 beds at the VA Nursing Home, so I need over 100 more washcloths that are gender neutral. Please spread the word!

Knitting:
