    OMG, that zombie is so cute. i haven’t even listened to your podcast yet, I had to stop and tell you how much I love the photo of Weeb. I will have to make it for my daughter who is away at college for her first year…should put a smile on her face, it not, it sure does mine! Now, on to the podcast!

    Show all your wips, please. I certainly enjoy seeing them, even when there hasn’t been any progress. Maybe it will encourage you to make time for even just a few stitches on them. Love the podcast (it’s my favorite) and look forward to it each week.

    Isn’t that just the cutest pattern ever? It is the EASIEST thing to knit and they all look wicked cute when they’re done!

    Oh, I’m so glad you enjoyed it Leigh! You’re buttons are so lovely, the only thing wrong with them is that it’s just too hard to choose!

    Ahhhh, thanks Amanda…..I’ve been fretting over your little one’s birthday presents….Maybe they’ll each get a zombie dude.

    This is the first time I’ve watched your podcast and it is delightful! I went to college in Yellow Springs and wish I could be there for the Wool Gathering. I think it is ay Young’s Dairy. If so you need to go there and order their apple pie (or maybe it’s apple cider) milkshake. It will rock your face off with apple cider/cinnamon vanilla-y goodness.
    Also, your monster is super cute! Good job.

    Oh, I’m so glad you enjoyed the show Rachael! Yellow Springs is a super beautiful area, so I’m looking forward to the trip!

    Purchased the Zombie Dude pattern, but I love the large size you made. What size needles did you use? Thanks, I love your podcast.

    Thanks Donna! I only used US3 needles, but with my very bulky yarn, the finished guage was 3.25 stitches to the inch.
