    I was a little embarassed about my total geek out, but figured if I ever actually start editing, there will be like 30 seconds of show when I’m done!

    I absolutely loved this episode. You cracked me up the whole time. From one redhead to another…love your colour choices, especially those loop batts. Oh, and in case no one else has ever said this…you are officially an ENABLER!!! I had to stop and but some of those feed bag bags! Love ’em!!!

    Love the episode! Amazing job on the egg-dye yarn! You got some great colors from that! I’m running off now to check out the feed bag totes!

    Thanks so much Mary! I know with the egg dye…I’m having crazy fantasies of little dyed nests of wool stored in egg cartons!

    Dude. 1. you totally pronounced my name right which is astonishing. It’s all P-Rita. So gold star! 2. you made me laugh so hard throughout you post! Seriously, you made me blush so much! 3. I feel like we would be friends in real life because I am also a former midwestern and get everything you were saying about money! It’s so funny!

    Thank you so much for featuring my bags! I’m really super glad you liked them. Honestly, when I first made them I didn’t think I’d sell any because they aren’t that big of a deal so I’m a little overwhelmed with selling out repeatedly 🙂

    Hooooray! And OMG, I would totally be your super in real life friend, and I promise it wouldn’t just be for the goat cheese pasta, although, let’s face it, you could kind of suck and I would still like you for that alone. But hooray you don’t! And further holy crapsticks, I’m so glad if some of my awesomely whack-a-loon viewers threw some sales your way! Yay for them and you!

    Clearly, I need to have the exclamation mark removed from my keaboard.

    What a great idea for those bags, she is very clever! Love love love your daybreak shawl – the colors look gorgeous together. I have to say that you have inspired me to buy some easter egg dyes one day and try and dye my own yarn (dont know if I wont google it though).

    Thank you so much Sue! I totally support google-ing everything as I’m typically over analyzer!

    Ah, thanks! I know it really is quite a terrible podcaster habit, and I try to stay away from it, but I’ve been doing it now for like 33 years, so it’s a bit difficult to change!

    love your podcast. you make me LOL. Amy Beth, what is the name of the shawl you were wearing in this podcast? it’s really neat. it’s strange that you would mention egg dyeing. i happened to catch that on line today and thought what a great idea. now i have to get to a walmart to see what they have left of the dyes. thanks for showing us. the colors were marvelous. looking forward to next weeks podcast….

    Thanks so much for watching! I should have put a link to the shawl pattern in the shownotes, but it totally slipped my mind….It’s the by Mandy Moore…..I used Lion Brand Amazing in Arcadia and Ruby.
