Relentless Knitting Podcast

Welcome to the Relentless Knitting Podcast! We’re so happy you've found us. We are two science teachers who knit based out of the beautiful Okanagan valley in British Columbia Canada. The goal of this podcast is to share our love of the fibre arts and foster community. Our focus will be knitting with flares of other hobbies and interests. We are both recent first time moms and we’ll be sharing some of our adventures in mommyhood. We own Relentless Knitting Company and are contracted by our local yarn store to teach knitting classes. Find us on facebook, twitter and the web at www.relentlessknitting.com and join our group on Ravelry - Relentless Knitting Company.

Q1 closes midnight tomorrow! (March 31st!)

For quarter 2 we are going to piggyback off the Wet Coast Wools KAL and if you knit for charity you’ll get an additional entry in the Q2 thread! That’s 3 possible entries. 1 for the gift knit, 1 for knitting from stash and 1 if it’s going to a charity! Wahoo!

The KAL will begin January 1st 2017 and run until December 31st 2017. We will have quarterly entry threads in the ravelry group for your FOs and prizes to give away (more on those in a bit)! There is also a year long thread to keep track of all your gifts knits and there will be prizes for most gifts knit in 2017!

It’s not too late if you would like to sponsor a prize! Just drop us a line and we’d be happy to have you on board. All sponsors will be mentioned in each episode of 2017!
