Topic of the Show: Nebraska's Best Superfine Merino DK from The Fiber Mill

In this swatch, Sherri and Tamara talk about Nebraska's Best Superfine Merino DK from The Fiber Mill in Nebraska. They both enjoyed learning more about the story of this yarn and swatching with it.

That's Entertainment 

  • Read. Some Desperate Glory by Emily Tesh. She's still thinking about this one. 
  • Watched. The musical Hadestown live while on a family trip to Chicago!!! The older teen picked this one because of the music and the whole family loved it. It's a modern retelling of the greek myths of Orpheus and Eurydice plus Persephone and Hades set in a New Orleans jazz type of scene.
