You can probably guess what the cult is. We are all part of the cult. The cult is life. It's knitting and crocheting!

We'll call this one a "curated" episode. It's short, but sweet, and full of accomplishments.

If we know anything, it is that Vivian will make multiple versions of patterns she likes. Also our cats love a cameo.

And she's working on her Wool and the Gang socks which are cool, but not going quite to plan.… Continue reading Episode 29: Pure Sass, Baby!
