Mixing Up Midlife


Welcome to Mixing Up Midlife, a weekly show for mid-lifers and empty nesters who want to shake up their middle years one challenge at a time. 

Part reality show, part audio diary and part cocktail hour, join us each week as we Mix up Midlife by doing the things we set aside while we grew our families and careers.

Should you learn to knit in midlife?

In this episode, Melissa convinces Terri that knitting is great and that she can do it-with a little help from her friend!

Terri definitely has her doubts. Can we complete a project before Halloween?

Trigger warning:

this knitting challenge is directly related to holiday gift giving and fingerless gloves are the gift of choice. 

Melissa wants to make gifts for everyone for the holidays and Terri seems to want to get rid of the gifts before they even get given.

 

The ladies talk knots, fast fashion, more gifts, why we feel like we need an excuse to relax and of course, there’s a cocktail and our Weekend Watch!
