  • To me, this is the best podcast (shop cast) ever. The enthusiasm from everyone talking about FOs, scrumptious yarn, publications and upcoming events is wonderful and so uplifting. Glad to know that Corrine is a “plodder” as am I. Hope Maggie feels better. Kelsey, I hit my lack of knitting mojo a month ago, then I put all my yarn in small paper bags to visualize all the projects I will knit for folks I know, folks who may come into my life later, and that inspired me to continue to knit. Love the book review on the fiber book. Will purchase copy! Thank you again, Wooly Thistle!
