Lovely episode as always ladies, you have added to my To-Do List yet again! Kelsie’s Mungo Sweater for warmer climates is EXCITING to this Texan! That will be a perfect project for indoors with air conditioning down here! The Brusca colors are gorgeous and B581 IS a great color, Maggie! There is definitely a color work sweater using Brusca in my future!I hope you will continue to offer the Donegal Blankets, it’s going to take time to get all the colors I want! Thanks to the entire TWT family, and can’t wait for Shopcast #194!
