Episode 18 – Mittens, Socks, and All Those Shenanigans

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the Savvy Girls, with both Melanie and Deborah hard at work on their knitting projects, among other things…

As Deborah attempt to coordinate her knee-socks, Melanie’s neighbourhood gets to know her a bit more than she intended.

Deborah describes her experience test-knitting the Linda Butterfly Socks, and takes on some New Years resolutions with her “Emerald” hand-spun sweater.

Deborah talks about the yarn she used to make Melanie’s Star-Crossed Slouchy Beret, and interviews with Montevideo-based 100 Pure Wool.
