Billion Dollar-Dickies, or When You Don’t Know the Yarn

Picture it: you find the perfect pattern. But you have no idea what the yarn in question is like – how it feels, how it behaves, and how it holds its shape. What do you do? In this week’s episode, the cast discusses your options for when you’re ready to cast on, but you don’t know the yarn. This episode has literally everything – yarn speed-dating, the case for swatches (yes there definitely is one, stop laughing) and Tina’s plan for a billion-dollar dickie business. If you know, you know.
