  • Recovering from knee replacement so watching some videos. Enjoying the shop casts. I brought up yarn, needles, books and magazines for my recovery. Now I need to figure out my knit along. I brought up a lot of my Jamieson and Jamieson & Smith so I have lots of colors to choose from.

  • What a fun shop cast! You guys are the best – gorgeous patterns, gorgeous yarn, inspiration galore! A perfect beginning to a new year of knitting. I’m loving all the accessory kits too. I’m a New Yorker and glad Corinne had a great time here!
    Thanks for all you do~~~~~~
