Next week (10/27) my guest will be David Babcockthe Knitting Runner.
 
David is the Guinness World Record holder for knitting the longest scarf (12 feet!) while running a marathon, which he did in Kansas City last October.
 
Coupled with a great deal of skill and endurance, David credits his choice in using Lion Brand’s Hometown USA as a factor in his amazing accomplishment!
 
Lion Brand is sponsoring David in the New York City Marathon on November 2nd, 2014. He is committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.
 
I hope you’ll join us for what I know will be an inspirational show.

On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (10/20/14) our guest will be designer, author, and teacher, Jen Lucas.
 
Jen Lucas has been knitting since 2004 and designing since 2008. Her designs have been seen in several magazines, including Knitscene, Love of Knitting, and Knit Simple. Her best-selling book, Sock-Yarn Shawls, was released in January 2013. You can also find dozens of her self-published patterns on Ravelry.  When not knitting, Jen can be found at her spinning wheel, reading or pinning crock pot recipes on Pinterest. She lives in Fox River Grove, IL with her husband, Alex.

Jen is also just a really good person. And I know you’ll enjoy hearing from this very talented designer. I hope you’ll tune in.

On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (10/06/14) my guest will be designer, teacher, author and illustrator Franklin Habit. Franklin is the author of It Itches: A Stash of Knitting Cartoons (Interweave Press, 2008) and proprietor of The Panopticon (the-panopticon.blogspot.com), one of the most popular knitting blogs on the Internet. On an average day, upwards of 2,500 readers worldwide drop in for a mix of essays, cartoons, and the continuing adventures of Dolores the Sheep.
 
Franklin’s varied experience in the fiber world includes contributions of writing and design to Vogue Knitting, Yarn Market News, Interweave Knits, Interweave Crochet, PieceWork, Cast On: A Podcast for Knitters, Twist Collective; and a regular columns for both Knitty.com and Lion Brand Yarns. Several of his independently published designs are available via Ravelry.com.
 
He travels constantly to teach knitters at shops and guilds across the country and internationally; and has been a popular member of the faculties of such festivals as Vogue Knitting Live!, STITCHES Expos, Sock Summit, and the Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat.
 
I'm very excited that he could fit the show into his very busy schedule. It will be great to have him back on Fiber Hooligan just before STITCHES East 2014.
