Episode 83 - It's all about the yarn!

This episode we share some of our experiences, observations, purchases and sights from the StitchesWest 2015 expo. It was fun, educational, entertaining and exhausting. You'll be hearing about some of the new yarns as they become works-in-progress.

Please welcome Robbie (aka Photoknitgal) as a moderator to our Ravelry group. Both Gayle and I have days when we can't get to Ravelry to check out the group discussions. Now Robbie will be there if anything comes up and Gayle and I are away from the computer. Robbie was also the initiator (instigator?) of the current Stash-Down Challenge reminding all of us to love the yarn we own! Thanks Robbie!
