    You are so much fun. I don’t think you need to appoligize for ‘ranting’. If anyone dislikes it, they can turn off the video! I’m glad you shared the book. I don’t eat flour or sugar so I wouldn’t make the breads but my hubby does like yogurt so I’m going to look into that. Thanks for sharing all the fun you have.

    Thanks, Sarah! I think I’m going print out your ranting permission slip and refer to it frequently….You may regret those words! And really, homemade yogurt is SO fun! I mean, how cool, you can make yogurt!

    oh my goodness you are always too funny, love the fact that your daughter does the exact same thing that mine does. when your on the computer she will add her 2 cents in a loud whisper.

    Hahahaha….Yeah, it takes some SERIOUS bribery to keep her off camera….I’m sure she’ll sneakily walk behind me one of these days on her way to get something she doesn’t need at all.

    My husband and i were totally talking back to you as you were saying hello in this episode. it was awesome.

    i want that “if your yarn looks like this ” book! I will definitely watch your bonus episode for curvy girl knits… i have big boobs and butts so that will be very informative 🙂

    That buy the bread book is awesome as well. i may need to get that! i love making my own Hummus. its so much better and takes maybe 5 minutes

    We totally need a hello mash up epsiode…..Everyone sends in their clips of saying hellllllloooooo and I magically edit them all together into viewer community awesomeness….Man, I need to get more tech savvy.

    You having me laughing out loud here, Amy Beth,
    Hey, it’s your kal, how you pick the winners is yours alone, whether you pick randomly or intentionally, it’s you choice. I really enjoyed kal-ing with you all.
    Plus, I do have a very lovely shawl as a result.
    You’re spot on, Amy Beth, those two Stockinett Zombies are sucking us all in. For me, it all started with that Shalom kal of theirs. YaaaHooo, I knit my first sweater ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    Now The Loopy Ewe Challenge -ed me into knitting the Gemini in cotton.
    Those enablers! ! ! sucking us in.
    Making the Bread – Buy the Butter Enjoyed your take on that, except you did stop mid-sentence regarding yogurt making. . . . . I made my own yogurt for years, then got a new stove without a pilot light. :*(
    Okay, I;m rambling ’cause it’s almost midnight.

    I found a book at my local library sorta like the one you are requesting… it’s called “Knit Fix: Problem Solving for Knitters” by Lisa Kartus. It retails in the US for19.95$ but Ive found it on ebay for half the price + shipping. It has a bunch of color photos AND drawings and is super elaborate and mostly a “if your knitting looks like this you probably did this and here are a couple ways to fix it without starting ALL over!” Definitely one I will be adding to my collection 🙂

    Thanks so much for the tip! I just requested a copy from the library and will share your findings with the group!
