    Rising Tide …. I have been a fan of Vickie for a good while now, I used to watch her on Knitty Gritty, I was so disappointed when that show went off the air; but found her “ask me Mondays” on fb several months ago maybe a year (my memory is not what it used to be). Vickie is a crafty inspiration 🙂 Thank you both for the opportunity to win this book!!

  8. Liz Kirpes says:

    I love the quote “A rising tide lifts all boats”. As women, we need to remember this. Great Video Marly!

  9. Jessica Valencia says:

    Vicki Howell’s The Knit Vibe book really is more than a pattern book. What a great read to have on the coffee table or on the night stand to relax or reinvigorate you. I am so glad that you had her on the Yarn Thing podcast to talk about her book.
    Rising Tide.
