Episode 46: Hats, Headlamps and Bags

The 1,000 Member Mark is coming soon!!!

Aryn of Bling Your String is very graciously donating one of her Three Month Project Pouch Club memberships as a prize!  As soon as the Ravelry group hits 1,000 members, I’ll open up a thread in the group! (Really with the exclamation marks, but you know they are totally justified!)

    I know I am late but I am a bird/lover/ knitter who would LOVE that bag for my very first sweater ever 😉 If someone has to back out, please pm me on Ravelry. iKnit1Purl2
    Loved your Boardwalk sweater…you looked awesome in it! The tutorial was fabulous!

    Thank you so much Barbi! The bird bags are all gone for the moment, but I’m looking into the logistics of doing a sign up for them to ship on or before February 1st. I will be sure to make an announcement as soon as I have further news!

    Thank you so much, Mary! I’m looking into doing a larger set of custom orders for the bag and I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as I have additional information!

    Hi Amybeth: I see your bags are all gone, but if someone bails on you, I’d like a little bit of “fancy” in my un-fancy home, too. 🙂

  12. Ingrid

    Crap! I ALWAYS watch your espidoes right away (at work, at my desk, trying not to laugh out loud too much) but I’ve been sick this week and now I’ve missed out on your bag! I have been wanting your bag since you first showed it – love that fabric! I’ve been watching you from show 1 and would love to be in on custom orders. I love your face!

  13. Ana

    I LOVED your segment on “Rechenka’s Eggs”! I teared up with you! We own (also from a beloved book sale at the library) “Thunder Cake” by P. Polacco. My boys get it off the shelf when a storm starts brewing here in stormy Florida. There’s a recipe on the last page for Thunder Cake! Secret ingredients and all……great author….

    I’m so glad you got weepy with me, Ana! We haven’t read Thunder Cake before, but I’ve got a request in to our library.

    Hi – can you please add me to the “I want a bag, wasn’t swuft (is that even a word) enough to see this episode until just now but I’m excited you may be doing more” list? I’m good with that fabric, or critters! I know it’s hard to promote your own things, but I thought you were adorable! I’m Truelove on Rav.

    Hi – can you please add me to the “I love your bags and want one too but didn’t see the episode until just now, but I’m excited that you might be doing more” list? Birds, critters, …. I’m Truelove on Rav. I know it’s hard to promote your things, but I thought you were adorable!

  17. Linda D. (epic1313)

    This is why I should watch podcasts faster. That bag is super cute, and I’d love to know when/if you end up doing more.

  18. thefatsquirrel Post author

    Hi Mary! So sorry I didn’t include that link in the show notes. Apparently I left out any spinning info all together. I’ve added it to the episode’s notes as the link looks cruddy in the comments. Thank you so much for reminding me!
