    I’m just now seeing your 2nd episode. I didn’t know you had uploaded it. I added you to my blogroll. I thought I had after your 1st episode but apparently I failed. lol
    Inspector Gadget is awesome so that makes you a great mom! But before 10am..I don’t know girl, that’s just wrong! 😉 heh!

    Did you know I’m actually from Bloomington, IL? I was your “state” neighbor. I go back often because my grand kids are there.

    Another awesome episode! Later, yo!

    Dude, I totally droolled over their color cards for over a year, and now that I’ve started, I must admit I’ve ordered an awkward amount of yarn from them.

    Thanks so much Suezee….I really appreciate you helping to spread the word about my show!

    That would be awesome-sauce….I’m working on a sweater with far too much stockinette, and it just screams “consume alcohol socially while knitting.”

    Hi! You have nailed pod casting right from the start! I watched both episodes back to back.

    We are about the same distance from Portland but in opposite directions! I’m in west central Ohio. My family were planning to come with me to the festival, but I’m too sick to go. Hope you have a lot of fun!

    Oh no Mim! I’m so sorry to hear you’re sick….Let me say, the husband and I had quite a good time. A small festival, but there was a little of everything and it was the first roadtrip we’ve been able to take, just the two of us for quite some time. That said, whoa, Portland, IN may actually be in the middle of nowhere!

    I just found you….no l’m not stalking well not yet but it may come to that…just saying.
    Yes I’m watching Downton Abbey. How did you know that are you watching me?????

    Great podcast. Love the mitt. You could always make the second one with chokecherry as the main color. I so think you could handle the lack of matchy matchy. ;~)

    I love, love, love you and your podcast!! You are a natural born podcaster, funny, informative, a little bit crazy. Perfect!! I too watched your podcasts back-to-back after seeing someone Plurk about you this morning. I actually laughed out loud several times during your podcast. You’re the bext. Keep up the amazing work!
