Episode 149 - Knitting in fashion

What is style? What is fashion? And why do we pick the garments we pick to knit and make? Gayle and I get the discussion going on this interesting subject. I feel like we barely scratch the surface and hope you will join in the discussion in our Ravelry group. The seasons are changing and soon many of us will be changing from warm weather to cool weather or cool weather to warm weather clothing. It might be time to assess items, replace items, and welcome back old favorites into the wardrobe rotation.  We hope you enjoy this episode!
