On this episode, Corinne and Maggie show us some of their sweaters from KALs past! Hear some of their favorite projects and some that turned out differently than expected. They also show us some new yarns and special edition totes coming to the shop soon, and invite everyone to join in the upcoming Sweater KAL! We have an update from Caitlin on her finished Tunis wool yarn and her sweater KAL plans, and a visit with Rachel on Fair Isle where they were "caaing" or gathering up the roaming Shetland sheep. Finally Kim takes us through an outdoor yoga practice to cap off another packed episode!
