Episode 239 - Knitting and Fiber Festival Nostalgia

We share a little nostalgia for an annual fiber event, cancelled due to the global pandemic. Really, it is nostalgia for seeing friends, meeting new ones, and sharing our experiences with other knitters and fiber enthusiasts. Our lives have been made richer by these experiences and we hope to be able to share time together in the future!
