Oh, I need to hurry up and catch up with your podcasts! I'm trying to listen to them in order and I'm only up to Ep. 4! Must put aside more knitting & podcast listening time :)

Just found you a couple of weeks ago. Actually had downloaded but not listened when i heard you on Savvy Girls. Didn't even realize it until I listened to your podcast a few days later.

I think (but not actually sure) that the Knitpicks Essential just changed their name to Stroll, not actually the base yarn.

So thanks for the Podcast, I'm really enjoying it!
