This week it’s our 50th EPISODE, WOO! Maggie’s still slogging along on the k1p1 strip of doom as well as encouraging a newbie, while Karen has achieved Ravellenic gold.
The achievement doesn’t end there, though, as Curiosity made a successful landing on Mars! Which has rightly given a lot of notoriety to a couple JPL staff members, in the geekiest way possible. (Hint: it involves Tumblr.) We also have news on virtual helpers you might see in your local airport some time soon and some goodies for Dr. Who fans. Especially for knitting Dr. Who fans, as we’ve found some seriously awesome needle gauges and WPI tools from one particular shop. We also have squeals over the new fall Twist Collective!
Finally, we have squealing over some knitty/nerdy goodies that listeners have sent us. THANK YOU GUYS!
We have a contest! Comment on this episode either here at the blog or at our Ravelry group and tell us about something geeky you’ve discovered in the last year before Sept. 14th for the chance to win a prize!
