Hello yarn-people! This episode is all about working with what’s on hand and thinking about how constraints or limits can make us more creative. Spencer makes a guest appearance and I have a WIP–what I’m calling the “Afterthought Sweater”–which is my cowl to sweater experimental design! Plus, an FO from LB Handknits, the Tailor’s Rib Hat; two KALs; and general mayhem that includes “The Yarn Game” . . . Come hang out a while? ~Melissa
