    Thanks so much Carolyn! And thank you for your generous donation as well! I spin on a very used (20+) Louet S10 that is new to me as of January….I am self (and you tube) taught and boy does it show! I get all whack-a-loony self-conscious when I’m learning something new in front of others, and there really aren’t any lessons within a reasonable distance, so I’ll save classes for another time.

    So like, next time the fairies pee, could you catch some in a cup for me & put it in a spritzer and send it to me? K thx. BTW, LOVE Bill Bryson. My fave is In A Sunburned Country. It’s my Dream Turnip to go to Australia (Dija get the Black Adder reference?). Your Piper’s Journey is extremely awesome but it’s Outta My League.

    Hi Amy Beth,
    You are always funny in every episode but in this episode you are the funniest yet! You are a quick witted one for sure.

    I went and looked at your itunes reviews and it is clear that everyone just LOVES you, your knitting and your podcast. That is so great. I’m a fan and will keep watching. I just subscribed to your blog, too. Love your spinning, knitting, yarn, patterns…..

    Thank you so much, Susan! I’m always glad to hear folks are enjoying the show, and maybe just a weeee bit more excited to hear that the famous knittery types are too!
