On this episode, join us for lots of knitting and yarn chat! Corinne and Maggie have their Shawl KAL projects to show, plus a few other WIPs. Caitlin has 3 new cast-ons (2 sweaters and a shawl)! There's lots of good stuff in the shop to talk about - new JaggerSpun Woolful BFL yarn, a fabulous restock of Birlinn Yarn, and of course, a first peek and almost complete tour of our Spring Taster Box! Finally, Rachel on Fair Isle has a sweet new assistant that you'll want to meet.
