Shopcast 199: 2023 Sock Bags and a Knitted Duck!

By Caitlin Johnson

 On this episode, Corinne and Maggie have our 2023 TWT Sock Bags to show!! These curated bags go live on the day this episode airs, Friday June 16th. They have some knitted project updates, and we have visits with Emma and Kelsey to hear what they've been working on. In shop news, we have a John Arbon restock of Yarnadelic and Devonia, plus you get the first peek at the upcoming yarn from Woolly Mammoth. Lastly, Kim has some yoga for our shoulders to get us loosened up!
