On this episode, join us as we wrap up our Shawl Knit-Along! Corinne's recently back from a week-long weaving class at Harrisville Designs - yay for new fiber pursuits! Maggie and Corinne have lots of shop news, finished and in-progress projects to show you, and so does our guest Caitlin. She also talks through some yarn and project ideas for budget-friendly woolly garments. We have new Wooldreamers Saona yarn to show you, Latvian Mitten boxes, the Hapkerchief KAL starting today through Simply Shetland, and more. Rachel on Fair Isle and her croft of sheep have a treat for us - Eurovision Sheep Style! We hope you enjoy this episode and share it with a friend!
