On this episode, sweater weather has arrived for us in the northeastern US! Corinne and Maggie show some of their current projects, have a little troubleshooting session about how to fix Corinne's Keris vest, and have lots of goodies in the shop to show us. Caitlin's finished Sweater KAL project, hap, and another sweater lead to some talk about worsted/woolen and superwash/untreated yarns. Rachel on Fair Isle answers some more of your questions, and we end with a yoga session with Kim!
