Episode 170: Off the Rails
Jenny is a kid sweater making machine. Nicole stalls out on sweaters and works on some small projects to break through her knitter's block. We are joined by Adrian, producer and Stash and Burn progeny. Interested in taking the next step in your sewing--Pants No. 1 are well within your abilities or try a t-shirt, no serger required! Jenny talks about soap-making and we start to go off the rails with the appearance of another guest star.

Episode 169: Rhinebeck!
After two years away, we are back, baby! We can't catch you up on all that we have done during our absence so we dive right back in. A few weeks ago, we went to Rhinebeck to go to the New York Sheep & Wool Festival. We met a few friends there, pet some sheep, and bought some wool. Full show notes can be found at Many thanks to our friend, Chris, who adventured to New York with us, and to Nicole's kid, Adrian, who served as a producer on this episode!
