Episode 119 - Knitting with the turkeys



This week we record again up in the redwoods with appearances by just a few critters, the mule deer and the turkeys. Neither were much bothered by our appearance and it was fun to sit and watch them before we started recording. We hope you enjoy our occasional "Where are they now?" segment, revisiting knits from the past, including a few sweaters we've given away, a sweater win, and a hat fail. Happy knitting!
