Episode 9: In Which I Invent Lots of Plural Forms


Thank You’s!

Suzanne and Lee for their generous contributions!

Cori for the awesome bags from BLUEQ….Oh wow, I just looked and there is awesomeness there.

Candy for her gift of the Zuni Shawl pattern by Danielle Chalson

Emma for joining the group!

Everyone who participated in the forums or left an ITunes review!

The Gratitude KAL will run through June 3.  I am knitting the Color Affection shawl by Veera Valimaki, but any wearable for yourself suited to mindful knitting will work!

The Fiber Event!

The only retailer who had a viable website was the truely awesome natural dyer, Sefania, and guess what?  All her stuff is totally available for purchase online!  Oh, this is not good for me, not good at all.

Other beauties that I saw, and highly recomend: gradient rovings from Fiber Optic Yarns

    Saw on my hotmail that you had updated so I put on my headphone and watched and it’s a great show again and…ehm…show us your spinningwheel? I love that you also have one as louet is just such a nice and great spinningwheel but hey it’s dutch hehehehe….

    And can I come over to live with you?? I’m not bother you’ll only miss some alpaca fleece but I’ll leave you some yarn in return.. or is that a bit odd??

    Thank you so much Valeria! I know, I really should take a pic of my little wheel for posting….I’ll get around to that someday, right?

    p.s. I will notify you immediately if the knitting/fiber commune comes together!

    another great podcast. i tried to finishe casting off my daybreak while watching this episode so i can start on my gratitude KAL project. but there are so many stitches, it will have to wait until tomorrow as its already 12:16am! the Gratitude KAL is such a good idea, I want to knit something i have been giftes, but i have so many patterns to choose from, it will be hard to pick.

    The cast off was a weee bit crazy….I’m getting closer to that point with the Color Affection and I think it may require mixed drinks…..Fruity ones with straws. And yeah! Gratitude knitting is turning out to be awesome…No1 thing to be grateful for….Too many patterns to choose from!

    When I glanced at the title I totally thought it said the fat squirrels squeaks! LOL!! My squirrels pretty much only squeak when one runs up on the back end of another. I don’t know if they bite to make them squeak or if it’s just a reaction they have to being snuck up on. Keep up the good work!

    My brain does that sort of thing all the time! Thansk for watching, Anna!

    I’m a little slow on the uptake. Just figured out why they sent you the squirrel tote bag…Duh. Very cute though. Are you going to use it for knitting projects or as a lunch bag?
    I have also thought of some of your yarns matching your hair. Your hair is beautiful by the way…very pretty. We have a granddaughter with your color hair and lots of curls. Oh, and your curtain behind you seems to blend right in.
    Thanks for podcasting.

    Thanks so much Cindy! I think I’ll be using those bags for everything….They currently have sock knitting in them as we went to a rainy cookout and the idea of a waterproof-bottomed knitting bag seem to make a lot of sense.
