Episode 8: 2021 Stashdown & Goals

We don't believe in New Year resolutions, but we do think it's good to have goals... let's make some! Maybe joining our first stash-busting KAL would be a good place to start!

make good stashdown:

Welcome to our first annual Stashdown KAL. This year's stashbusting project will be Stephen West's Penguono. Today we're talking about some of the technical aspects of pattern (size, gauge, choosing yarns, etc.) and we hope that you'll knit a Penguono with us!


  • Cast-On January 4th (or whenever... this is pretty laid back!)
  • Post photos of your Penguono progress on Instagram and use the tags #makegoodstashdown and #makegoodpenguono
  • Each tagged photo will count as one entry. You may enter as many times as you'd like!
  • You do not need to be finished with your Penguono to be eligible to to win, but you do need to follow @makegoodpod
  • On February 1st we'll randomly select one of you to win $150 gift card to Scratch!
