Shopcast 200: 7th Birthday Celebrations at The Woolly Thistle!

By Caitlin Johnson

On this episode - our 200th! - Corinne and Maggie take us through all The Woolly Thistle 7th Birthday Celebrations! We have an amazing giveaway happening this month - SEVEN huge prizes just for signing up on our website (see details below)! They also have updates on their knitting (including Maggie's Nana Duck). We have a great segment from Thistler Kathy who shows us how she modifies patterns to fit her. Caitlin has knitting updates and a little tour of her mom's Circular Sock Machine. And Rachel on Fair Isle has some news from her croft. A great episode!

Don't forget to join us TODAY on our YouTube channel as Corinne and Maggie go live at 12:30pm ET as a special celebration of our 200th episode and our 7th birthday!
