Shopcast 191: Shop Goodies, Knitting, plus Supporting Rachel on Fair Isle

By Caitlin Johnson

On this episode, Corinne and Maggie are decked out in wool and happy to talk all about it! Our Colorwork Accessories KAL continues for another week, and Maggie's cast on a second hat project. Shop news today includes brand new worsted weight Fivel yarn from Rauma! Also, a fresh batch of Studio Donegal blankets will be with us soon, and there are a few Harris Tweed totes left (with project bags coming again soon!). Caitlin joins us to show her Super Simple Summer Sweater and other projects. And Rachel on Fair Isle has some wonderful news - she's been busy setting up her Ko-Fi and Patreon pages, as well as an Adopt-A-Sheep program. You'll want to hear all about those!
