Gigi has turned the heel on her Par 5 socks.
Mother Knows Best: (15:33)
Gigi and Jasmin discuss the virtues of stashing, and how a healthy stash can make your knitting recession-proof.

Jasmin is having trust issues with the chart on the Wool Peddler's shawl. Gigi sews her sweater together more creatively than normal.
