    Great podcast you silly girl! Whew, you are a busy bee knitter….you make me look laaazy. I must try the Beaverslide yarn. I love your rustic yarn! I love Peace Fleece-ish rustic yarns. They wear like iron and smell great. You are inspiring me to dust off the spinning wheel. Thanks for your craziness. It makes me happy!

    Thanks so much Carolyn….I LOVE Peace Fleece….They used to have this amazing green and I would just look at their catalog over and over and over again…..I had forgotten all about them. Thanks so much for the reminder!

    I loved the episode even if you didnt think you had anything funny to say. Love that green yarn – what an awesome color. You are a very fast knitter too. Makes me wish I could be a bit quicker so I could finish up some UFOs. Have a great week Amy!

    I watch your podcast at the end of the day – and my comment my reflect just that. Amy Beth you are one crazy gal. And I’m lovin’ every minute of it ! !

    I love your podcast, but girl ya gotta stop whispering!!!! I miss out on what you say and I hang on your every word. Ok, maybe not every word, but I do miss some of what you say cuz you whisper and I can see your lips move, but I don’t hear anything. Yes, yes, I have a volume slider and it gets adjusted. Pleasssse, don’t torture me with moving lips and no sound. BTW, the easter egg dye socks are dang cute. Ok, I am done now. Have a good week!

    Sue, I know the whispering is rough on some folks, and everytime I start to podcast, I try to remind myself not to do it, but then it just happens….Something about the in-the-moment nature of unscripted recording just drives all reminders of volume from my mind…I’m working on it!

    You’re welcome! Glad I could be of some assistance with de-crapping your mood.

    As far as your whispering [btw, I love it] there are times when I think you are just mouthing a couple of words and I can tell what you are saying anyway.
    But then I do use earbuds.
    yes, yes, love you and love your podcast.

    I just started watching the podcast. The first time I just listened, which was last week, Thank You Universe. I kept hearing something about “The Gratitude Cow.” I couldn’t get what it was from context, so now that I can actually see your lips move, I can slap my forehead and say, “Doi!” KAL! OHHHhhhhh.
