Shopcast #210 Corinne Flies Solo, Knitting Buddies are Back, Holiday Knitting, and Yoga!

Corinne is flying solo today while Maggie is out with a bug. Join her to learn about her WIPs, find out if she has any FOs this week (SPOILER ALERT: there are!), learn more about Knitting Buddies, and see what's new in the shop. Then visit with Kelsey for all things "gift knitting", Emma for a study in green, and take a yoga walk with Kim and her cat. Even missing half of our dynamic yarn-duo, it's a packed full episode. We hope you enjoy!
