This week on Tuesday: Kristin Omdahl!
Marly’s good friend Kristin Omdahl joins us to talk about what’s new for her, her time on Knitting Daily, and various other things.
As you may or may not know, Kristin has her own scent with Eucalan called Wrapture. Wrapture is scented with the essential oil of Night Blooming Jasmine, a natural aphrodisiac (it does smell heavenly! I love it!). In addition to the No-Rinse Delicate Wash already available, the new Fragrant Balm will be coming out very soon. The Wrapture Fragrant Balm still incorporates the scent of Night Blooming Jasmine, but now in a moisturizing balm great for your skin. Kristin uses it as a subtle perfume as well that won’t spill and ruin your purse (awesome idea, yes?)!
Kristin’s new book, Knitting Outside the Swatch, just came out this week.
This book takes the idea of motifs (very common in crochet) and translates them into knitting and shows you many ways you can use them. Not only did she come up with all designs of the garments and accessories, she also designed all the individual motifs and shows you how you can join as you go so there are no seams! As an added bonus, if you order the book from Kristin’s website here, you also may also still receive a bottle of Wrapture Delicate Wash with your purchase! While you are there, don’t forget to check out her other books.
And as usual a *giveaway*! Leave a comment that includes Kristin’s keyword for a chance to win your very own copy of Knitting Outside the Swatch!
Let’s give some love to our sponsors!
