At the Drawing Table with Franklin Habit

Watch Franklin Habit, author of I Dream of Yarn: A Knit and Crochet Coloring Book, for a little lunchtime relaxation as he sketches, live from his drawing table, a bit of yarn-laden whimsy. The exact subject will be determined on the spot, but there’s a high likelihood of cute sheep. Or maybe cats. But absolutely yarn.

Knit in the Pit at Virtual Knitting LIVE!
hosted by Jon Giswold

Bringing the vibrant CommuKNITTY that began at the City by the Sea, Asbury Park, to Virtual Knitting LIVE! Jon welcomes special guests in for a visit and then takes a few questions for an interactive chat with some celebrities, indie dyers, and local yarn shop owners, engaging in conversations and inspiration for every fiber enthusiast. Jon loves promoting the small business owners, makers, and artists that nurture the craft we all love so much. Think of the warmth we all find sitting around the table at our own LYS—you’ll find that spirit at Knit in the Pit.
