Hi everyone!!!  I recorded this episode not long after the previous one with the intention of getting it out faster….well…..at least it didn’t take 3 months!!!  I have some hats to show you and some hand spun yarn and some Let’s Go Retro!!!  I hope you enjoy watching.

A special THANK YOU!!!  to Louise of Caithness Craft Collective podcast for the shout out on a recent episode.  Quite a few folks have mentioned they heard I was “back” because they heard it from YOU!!!  XOXOXO

    After nylon excitement you left us hanging for cotton? Meanie. I’m just starting on a color work fair isle cap. I wish I could knit triple time so I could get it done while we still have sub-zero temps! Brrrr. The trees and snow on that sweater are fabulous, Mary .

    • Don’t worry, you won’t have to wait too long for cotton! Im in a wicked color-work mode right now! I’m getting ready to start the Fiddlehead Mittens…got yarn in the mail yesterday (so much for THAT New Years resolution!🤣). Keep knitting – stay warm!!!
