    Girl, I told you that you were awesome when I first watched you! I get to say “I knew her when” hehe LOL at the home school family! My daughter does that but hasn’t always. She started when my granddaughter was about to start 4th grade. Bad things happened at her school so she took her out because the school distract they were in at the time the grade school she had to go to was just awful. 😦 But my sister is a retired English teacher so she gets 1 on 1 tutor 3 to 4 times a week besides the assignments from her mom. This is more info than anyone needs, eh? Well, you deserve an epic comment because you are epic and awesome. Hugs!

    Hi Amy Beth,

    Another great episode. Like I said before you are totally crazy, but I love it. Every time I watch an episode I wonder what it is like for your husband to live with you. LOL! You are hilarious. Anyway, do you have a Ravelry Group? I tried searching for one, but didn’t find anything.

    Ah Sue, I understand. We live in an urban school district that is plagued with problems of one sort or another….My little one will start next year, but has gotten into a Montessori magnet option and we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that things can work out well!
    And of course, epic comments are AWESOME!

    Tina, clearly my husband would say that his life with me is filled with nothing but laughter, love, joy and peace.

    Of course, he would likely be rolling his eyes at the time, but, ya know.

    A Ravelry group is in our near future!

    Oh bizzaro kindred spirit…another awesome episode! Totally understand bad knitting ju-ju. Joris is beyond cute! Just so you know….you have 2 (yes 2) friends that admire you that live on the same street. (The awesome Sock Bunny is my neighbor!) Fate put us in the same street in order to balance out the neighborhood!

    By the way…I left you an iTunes review inviting others to listen in…my psychic abilities tell me that they will listen…

    Can wait to hear more from you! A Ravelry group would be heaven!

    Another great episode! 🙂 I’m coveting that gradient roving! I want some sooooo bad now! I’m knitting some socks (Haystacks) with Hazel Knits right now too. I’m loving it but don’t know if I’m going to get two out of this one skein so of course I’ll be sweating it until the end. (They’re for my SIL).
    Have a great week!

    I have to say that I love your show. You are truly hilarious and so much fun. I am waiting for you to start a rav group too. Love your sweater by the way with the hidden pockets. More yarn, well obviously it was meant to be.

    Thanks so much, Cam….And look at the two of you knittin’ it up at block parties…How cute!

    A Rav group is in our future!

    Dawn, I know with the second sock stress…..I know it’s the reason that I’m militantly toe-up….I’ve never actually run out of yarn, but with my giant feetses, the thought always haunts me!

    Thanks so much, Sue! We’re a “Do More With Less” family as a rule, but the yarn, well, she’s a temptress for whom I have little resistance.
