Episode 376: Getting Cozy in the New Year

We’re back from break! In this episode, Lee and Stacey catch listeners up on their personal projects as well as all the amazing new yarn, product, and pattern releases that have come out since we last recorded. Andi joins them to discuss 2023 New Year’s Goals and how well they succeeded (or didn’t), and they also chat about their 2024 goals.

Plus, Stacey and Lee share a bit behind the scenes of our latest cables collection, Homestead Cables! It was an incredibly fun photoshoot with animal friends who stole the spotlight.
