It’s a brand new season of The Yarn Thing podcast! Marly kicks things off with Anne Hanson of Knitspot. Anne has been knitting for a long time. She took a few different paths before ending up more focused on her own designs and business. She is also an established blogger! Anne is a prolific designer and she shares a bit of her process. Listen to find out Anne’s favorite designs! Have you knit a Highlander sweater?
The Bare Naked Club 2013 has signups open until the club sells out. Shipping starts in February 2013! What is it? This is a collection of yarn that will be shipped out once a month, six months at a time. There is a Fall club, which is a series of colors and small projects that are perfect for holiday gifts. Also included is an ebook with photographs and information. The Bare Naked Club is made up of “close-to-the-farm” yarns, collaborating with mills over dyers. The yarns last year included several U.S. wools and fibers from around the world. Every month, the chapter of the e-book described the fiber history and how the yarn is made. Stay tuned for the upcoming yarn line that will be in the Knitspot shop soon!
A lucky listener won the Bare Naked Club 2013 e-book during the show! Congratulations!

Enjoyed the podcast. Love seeing Mr. Knitspot in pattern photos!
I checked out Anne Hanson’s blog, and I must say that Mr. Knitspot looks pretty cozy in the new Creel pieces! I am amazed at the quantity AND the quality of the designs created by Ms. Hanson! Wow! Oh, and there will never be enough yarn clubs out there! 🙂

Anne’s comment about Mr. Knitspot and her nephews liking handspun yarn has me wondering about my mister!

I’m really excited about the Bare Naked Club-I just joined up. I checked out the Knitspot blog and saw pics of Mr. Knitspot modeling some of the projects that have been knitted.
Marly another wonderful podcast, thanks, hope Payton Manning does as well for you as Mr. Knitspot.
I really enjoyed hearing Anne tell her story, and of course, I love her patterns. I would have loved to hear how she met Mr. Knitspot.
I glad Mr. KnitSpot is so popular!!!
Mister Knitspot should be my friend!
