Thank you for tuning in to Episode 73.  In addition to what’s On and Off The Needles, I share a silly mistake I made on the current WIP, I nonchalantly give a sleeve as birthday present and I get excited for the NH Knits Mitten KAL that starts 2/28/18.  There’s also EYF updates, chatter about the Blackerpodkal as well as The Woolly Thistle shop update.  Enjoy!!
