Episode 193 - Introducing the Colors of Fall 2019!

It is almost KAL time! We discuss and introduce The Yarniacs Colors of Fall 2019 Knit-a-long! A thread has already started in our Ravelry group for planning and everyone is talking about the colors and what they want to knit. Gayle and I had originally planned to introduce the KAL in June, but everyone has been so excited to start planning that the thread was started, chatted had commenced, and we felt we'd better catch up with all you enthusiastic knitters! Thanks so much for supporting the KAL, our podcast, and being such enthusiastic yarniacs!
