    I really enjoy your video podcasts. You make me smile, and you provide useful fiber arts information. I recently had surgery and was home from the hospital. I was having a completely yucky day, and watching stuff on tv did not cut it. I couldn’t even knit! Anyway, I watched your podcast, and it seemed to be the only thing that cheered me up! Thanks, Linda (ravelry:sawtoothgal)

    wow. thats a big sock. your husband is lucky you love him so much. i dont think i could knit a plan, camo, ribbed sock that big (at the moment i am knitting ribbed, camo (but mostly dark green) fingerless mitts, however, they have a cable motif, so that makes it better)

  4. thefatsquirrel Post author

    Yes, the ribbed is a double edged sword of sorts….Wonderfully mindless, but soooooo dang mindless. I’m not sure that he’s all that lucky, I’m sure he would prefer a store bought present, but whatevah, he’s getting socks made with love, damnit.

    Love Hobby Lobby’s cotton yarn. Likewise, i don’t like or use the dishcloths. however, i am enjoying knitting them and will donate mine to Warmth for Warriors. when i do dishes i like to also use the green sponges. haven’t tried the brown ones yet. i guess i will have to give them a try, will irritate me to see them dissolve, but i will give them a try.

    Thanks for another great show.

    I love your show! This one was really enjoyable. I love your purple scrubby. I don’t have a dishwasher..never have, right or wrong and I sympathize with you about the dry stuff. Are you going to dye the “vanilla” roving? I don’t spin but I love seeing your results. When I knit “vanilla” socks I like 3X1 ribbing-I figure that less purling is good. Keep going, girl!

    I think I’m going to dye the roving fo sho….It’s actually “easier” to spin in an undyed state, but let’s face it, it’s also way less fun!

    Amy beth, my hero! ANYhoo, the “Be Mice Elf” fiber harkens back to an earlier time…1969 with Sly and the Family Stone. Funkalicious, Baby!
