On this episode, we have lots of content as always! Corinne and Maggie have updates on their Sweater KAL sweaters plus lots to show you in the shop. Shetland Wool Week starts tomorrow, and we have a brief look through the Annual. We have new Moa Sweater sets by Linka Neumann, plus a special delivery of Armscote Manor yarns going in the shop today! Corinne is joined by Armscote's Deborah Williams for a fascinating interview full of history, sheep, and even a ghost story! We also have segments from Kelsey talking about using different fingering weight yarns together, and Emma with a sweater KAL update and some spinning. And lastly we have a yoga session with Kim for your back.
