On this episode, we have a few things to celebrate! Our Annual Sweater Knit-Along starts today, so Maggie and Corinne share their knitting plans with us. Guest contributor Emma also has some sweater-tweaking plans, and Kelsey has a great segment about yarn plies! We also have our third batch of our very own yarn Rambler back in the shop today, along with Halligarth Shawl kits! There are other fun updates in the shop and lots of preorder books to talk about. Yoga with Kim is a great segment for taking a moment to care for your hands.
