The Lush Skein

Each podcast episode, I discuss wine and yarn pairings in a segment called "The Lush Skein".  Here, you will find a complete list of all the pairings to date. If you want to know the reasons behind the pairing, however, you'll have to listen to the show to find out! Try them out (21+ of course), and let us know what you think!  Feel free to send some suggestions and I'll review them on the show!
