suzy hausfrau podcast | episode #19 | shopping for yarn

Shopping for yarn is fun, there is no doubt about it! But it is SO much easier if you have a plan!
In this episode of the podcast

I'm joined by my friend Jane who shares her best tips for how to get the best out of your yarn shopping experience. We give special mention to events such as markets and fairs where the choice is almost overwhelming. And no the solution is NOT to buy it all!

Please note that we experienced some technical difficulties during the recording which resulted in some fuzz throughout the episode. Apologies for this, but please do listen on as Jane has some great information and tips to share.
