Shopcast 225: Knitting Courage and Happiness with Indigo Knits

By Caitlin Johnson

On this episode, we have three wonderful segments for you! Corinne and Maggie give a little update about the Vest Knit-Along which starts today, and a few new items in the shop. But they mostly set the stage for contributions from our TWT team member Ruth who shares all about her recent crochet projects, then a fascinating interview with Kim Paquette of Indigo Knits where she shows us her new Recursion Sweater in our Rambler yarn, and we finish with a great segment of Yoga with Kim!
