  • As always, your shopcast was a wonderful show. Thank you for your woolly enthusiasm and especially the guest interviews, too. Kudos to Maggie for your beautiful woven scarf! You’ve inspired me to pull out all that variegated superwash stash yarn that I loved in the skein but not as knitted fabric. What a great idea for my flip RH!!! ♥️ Thank you, thank you, thank you!
