There’s no new show this week, but but you can cool down a bit just by listening to this episode from February of this year when we were in the grip of a record breaking cold snap!

With some steadily hot temperatures and high humidity in the Northeast this past week it’s been hard to find projects to work on that didn’t make it even worse! What do you knit/crochet when it’s too hot but you just can’t help yourself?
