Son of Stitch 'N Bitch contest winners The winners of the signed copies of Debbie Stoller's new book are Mel and Arlette. As a serendipitous aside, Arlette just designed a killer two color brioche hat called the "Double Dutch". You can see pix and purchase the pattern from Bella Knitting.
Next show: Ravelry! The BobFather and MamaRav (aka Jess and Casey) discuss all things Ravelry. We'll also announce the winner of episode 2's Art vs. Craft contest (they're both winners!).
