First blog post! First podcast incoming!

Hello from our knitting space! Grab your beverage, your knitting, and settle in, cuz here we go!

We podcast from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It’s in the middle (near the longitudinal center of Canada). The temperature here ranges from -40°C (-40°F) to 40°C (104°F) so we get to explore the full range of what knitting has to offer. Diana likes to knit socks, shawls, and hats. Jocelyn is a massive fan of scarves, shawls, and cardigans.

We are sisters, sort of, in that our partners happen to be brothers. Hey, friends are the family you choose, right? Our partners, Mr. B and Chris are avid board gamers and tabletop game enthusiasts, as are we.

In addition to our passionate love affair with yarn, Jocelyn is also a self-proclaimed bibliophile and has yet to meet a book that she doesn’t want to add to her collection. Diana regularly tries to smash gender sterotypes working in the male-dominated field of computer programming.
