YarnTalk Christmas Special 2015 | What we’re gifting, bloopers & the YarnTalkTail

YarnTalk Holiday card 2015

Surprise! Heidi, Leah & Allyson decided to pop in for a little BBC-style Christmas special episode between seasons 1 & 2 of YarnTalk. The ladies are sharing what they’re knitting (or not knitting) for the holidays, gifts are exchanged among the hosts, and Heidi shares an original recipe for your new boozy best friend: the YarnTalkTail (a.k.a YarnTalk’s signature cocktail). As always, don’t forget to keep up with the show using #yarntalk on social media between seasons!
