    I really enjoyed this episode. Your spinning looks great so far, and as I dont spin or intend to in the near future I think you should be very happy with it. Your shawl looks beautiful. I love your cardigan. I wonder if the cropped cardis and dresses work with small butts and big tummies as I could knit one then! Hope you have a fantastic week!

    Thank you so much, Sue! I really like the cropped cardi…..If I’m trying a new style, I always like to try something in a similar shape on at the store….It’s saves a lot of knitting!

    Just started watching after the recommendation on Knitting Pipeline … you’re a hoot! Really looking forward to catching up with your back episodes and checking out your British accent, it can’t possibly be as good as my mid-West accent. Thanks for doing what you do with such humour!

    Ok, but clearly there is a parallel which needs to be exploited! I think I need the wavy flashback soon.

    I just wanted to let you know that I’ve really been enjoying your podcast – you are a joy to watch and listen to. Gotta run as I’ve two Cotswold fleeces drying in my driveway that need turning over!
