Episode 9: Hot for Harlot
Does Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, The Yarn Harlot
, need an introduction? Author of five books (so far). Founder of the Knitting Olympics and Tricoteuses Sans Frontières/Knitters Without Borders
(who have raised over $430,000 for Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors Without Borders
since 2004). And, perhaps the most-read of the knitting bloggerati. If you don't already know her, stop reading this right now and run over to yarnharlot.ca
to catch up. We'll wait here.
Lucky for you, dear listeners, we have, not one, but two conversations with Stephanie. In April, she and Stephen sat down on the last night of BMFA's sock camp to talk about (what else?) knitting. More recently, she gave Mike and Stephen an exclusive and very exciting announcement.
We have two signed copies of the Harlot's latest book, Things I Learned from Knitting (Whether I Wanted To or Not). Tell us what you're doing on Worldwide Knit In Public Day, June 14. (It's also Stephanie's 40th birthday!) From the submissions, we'll randomly choose two winners.
Y Knit? C'est fantastique!
