Welcome back! Thanks for joining us for Episode 2.
This week will be a little departure from our usual format. Corinna is busy moving, so Dana and Kristi discuss their Yarn Crawl stash enhancement. There's a lot of that! We have a few WIPs and FOs to mention, but the bulk of this episode will be spent ooohing and aaaahing over our new purchases.
Like most of you, we have full time jobs. So, in order to be able to fully participate in the Yarn Crawl, we decided to go hard for the opening weekend.
The Mission: 10 yarn shops in 2 days.
We had the opportunity to have a few friends join us at various points of the crawl, and it was a lot fun! Below is a list of the shops we went to:
Note: We had lots to talk about this week, so we've split this episode into two parts. The second part (Episode 2.5) will just be the second part of the yarn crawl discussion, and will not have other segments like WIPs, FOs, etc.
All of our show notes are given below, with information and links to what we discussed in this episode. Let us know if you can't find any information you need.
As always, we would love to hear from you! Did you enjoy the episode? Have you participated in a yarn crawl? Is there a topic you would like us to discuss next? Are there any excellent tips or items we should check out? Please feel free to leave a comment, contact us on Ravelry (either by message or in the group), or drop us a note through the Contact page.
We hope you enjoy the episode. Please stay tuned for more crafty goodness, coming to your earbuds soon!
