Episode 134 - Knitting Interpretations

Gayle and I are getting ready to head to that annual yarn fest known as StitchesWest. In anticipation of our annual yarn love celebration we like to look at patterns and potential "must knits." On the list this year will a few entries from the latest collection by Joji and Veera. I can hardly believe it is their 4th Interpretations collection! The Interpretations collections are always a favorite with the Yarniacs and this one does not disappoint. Take a look and let us know if you'll be knitting anything from this new collection!
