Amigurumi Gingerbread HouseIn the latest episode of YarnCraft, our audio-podcast, my co-host Liz and I focus on two very exciting developments in the yarn world. First, we take an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the newly opened Lion Brand Yarn Studio, including interviews with staff and customers. Then we’re joined by Kate Jacobs, bestselling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club and the new book, Knit Two, coming out on November 25th, and she tells us how you can have her visit YOUR book-club next year! Kate will also be LIVE at the Studio in January, so check out the Lion Brand Yarn Studio website for more information.
