Episode 138: and now for some pockets

cover138This episode includes the following segments: Yarn Lover at Large, Ever-expanding Skill Set, and On the Porch. I’ll be sure to add an Off the Shelf segment to a future episode. The Bressay dress I’m knitting in anticipation of Rhinebeck is almost complete. Have you been tuning in to watch or listen to Fleecewise: The Series? Two episodes have dropped and another is due out this week. Episode 139 will be devoted to the question: What do I do with the fleece once I get it home? If you have questions or suggestions on this topic, post them here.
