Episode 139 | Knitting With Singles Yarns

Today we chat about some delicious tea, a couple of sweater WIPs, a shawl, a hat and a whole bunch of projects knit from singles yarns. I talk about some considerations when knitting with singles yarns, as well as an update on my combo spin! Hint: it's going really well - picture below!

Come on, let's knit!
