This week Kathy and Carol have their 4th annual year in review and chat about the yarn industry in 2013.
Kathy talks with Carol about the impact of social media sites like Facebook, Ravelry and Pinterest. They also discuss the influx of literary and pop culture themed collections, the growth of online classes and the major trends of the year.

We’re collecting Hats for Halos of Hope. Our thanks to everyone that has already sent in hats, keep ‘em coming! You can now make a donation in lieu of hats and help out as well! Each $5.00 contribution counts as 1 hat in our total. Donations can be made here.
Make as many knit and/or crochet hats as you can (check here for preferred fibers and free patterns) and get them to us by February 1, 2014. Make sure each hat and package is labeled with “Team RSK!” Please mail all packages to:
