Episode 366 – Knitting in Public with Michele
Michele Bernstein, an Asian-American woman, wearing glasses and a brioche shawl

Knit in Public Day is this weekend, and we thought it was fitting to invite Michele Bernstein to join us for this episode of the podcast, because she will once again be joining the Knit Picks team for our own Knit in Public Day event! We talk with her about her current design passions, past small knitting events like Knit in Public Day, and bigger events with classes like Vogue Knitting Live. If you’re local to the Portland, Oregon area, we hope you’ll join us this weekend in Vancouver, Washington for our event. You can find more details on here on the Knit Picks blog.

Plus, Lee, Stacey, and Andi share their progress on the the Ice Fire KAL and introduce our latest pattern collection, Soft Stripes & Intersecting Lines.
