Listen To the Episode
Earlier this week, I got a sweet package from @knittersbrewingcompany Wendy. She asked if she could send me some preemie hats for @fsn_cc. I said "of course!" These are brand new designs that will be included in an upcoming collection. They are really cool! And then she spoiled me by including a couple of hanks of her exclusive yarn! (Swipe to see the 2nd picture.) the one on the left is 100% superwash merino worsted — it's what she made the preemie hats with. The one on the right is superfine alpaca, merino, and tencel fingering. I know it will be dreamt to knit with. AND it's color is "Blueberry Pie." 😍😍😍 Thank you so much, Wendy!
