Ep 17: Making Mojo

Welcome to Little Skein & the Big Stash, hosted by Anne and Stacie. We both make yarn, and knitting kits, and really wonderful products to enliven your crafting time. This is our monthly podcast where we share what we’re knitting and give you a peek behind the scenes at what it’s like to run a microbusiness. And, because we connect with lots of other small business owners, we share our perspectives on some of the topics that are influencing the knitting and craft world.

Everything about our podcast is here on our YouTube channel. You can chat with us below, or on Instagram, or in one of our Ravelry groups.

In this episode, Anne and Stacie share lots of knitting this episode, including finished objects and projects that are going, well, not so well. Molly beagled more yarn (predictably) and there’s lots of holiday happenings in both the Must Stash and Little Skein studios.
