Episode 16 – Enter The Llama

It is a new year, and the Savvy Girls have hit the ground running.

Deborah buys a llama (almost), and spins up a storm, while Melanie attempts to knit a piggy sweater for her favourite guinea pig, Big Red.

Have the girls managed to keep up their new year resolutions? If so, Deborah has a lot of knitting to do, and Melanie needs to keep away from open flames!

Special guests on this episode are young knitting expert Regan (aka frecklegirl726), all the way from sunny Texas; and Deborah and Melanie’s Mom, who drops in to read them a story… a fiber-related story, of course!
