Should you learn to knit in midlife?

In this episode, Melissa convinces Terri that knitting is great and that she can do it-with a little help from her friend!

Terri definitely has her doubts. Can we complete a project before Halloween?

Trigger warning:

this knitting challenge is directly related to holiday gift giving and fingerless gloves are the gift of choice. 

Melissa wants to make gifts for everyone for the holidays and Terri seems to want to get rid of the gifts before they even get given.

 

The ladies talk knots, fast fashion, more gifts, why we feel like we need an excuse to relax and of course, there’s a cocktail and our Weekend Watch!
