Episode 48 - The new normal

Gayle and I were SO happy to be recording a "regular" episode. We were grinning from ear to ear. It bears repeating that we love knitting, making things, and sharing our yarnie adventures with you!

We have received a number of items for review, and unfortunately because of the interviews and our pre-recorded episodes, we've fallen a bit behind. So, we'll share some reviews with you about a couple of items this episode. We are nearing the holiday gift season and it only makes sense to share as many new items with you as possible. Whether you are a gift-giver or not, there may be items or books that will fill a special need during the fall and winter seasons.

Thanks so much to everyone for your wonderful comments on our wool series. It is continuing education, and as Gayle and I learn and encounter new things, we will share our adventures with you. In homage to our podcast guests Deb Robson and Clara Parkes, we will be occasionally adding a new segment to our repertoire. In "What are we swatching?" we will share a new yarn or wool that has caught our attention. We will start that soon. We may have one more guest to add to the series, and hope to finalize that this week. In the meantime if you have wooly questions or observations, please visit the thread on Ravelry and join the discussion.
