The Yarniacs: A Knitting Podcast

Sep 5, 2014

Sometimes I overhear my kids and their friends teasing each otherusing the phrase "Hashtag epic fail." If you've been around the internet, you know they mean #epicfail as used in social media like Twitter or Instagram. This week Gayle and I co-opt their phrase to share a little bit of our knitting history, and some projects that we categorize as "hashtag epic fails." Gayle and I knit a lot, and have knit a lot, and on the podcast we love to share the things we knit and why we love them. But it is important to know that yes, like all knitters, we too have produced many stinkers, duds, or epic fails. Most of the time you hear about our successes, but now, welcome to our epic fails! And keep in mind, we only had time for a few. There are many more lurking in our closets!
