After the launch of the pilot episode 2 weeks ago, this is the first "regular season" episode of the show - It Takes Balls To Knit - The Show. In this episode, we continue with the basics in knit school by exploring the knit stitch - but we show how to do it both the traditional way and the continental way. We also look at some machinery that has been going strong for over 100 years, and enjoy a nice cup of masala chai with the lovely Trudy Ann. As always, there's stuff to give away, tips to discover, and fun to have. I hope you travel along with us on this fantastic journey into the world of knitting!
