Thank you ladies! I smiled the whole 48 minutes and my cheeks are sore but it was worth it. I laughed out loud when Hoxton said Malabrigo was made of buttered kittens and greentrianglegirl wondered if she had to surrender her passport because she doesn't listen to the queen's speech. Sounds like you two had a fun time. Happy holidays to you both.

Enablers! Not 2 minutes into the show, I had to go fetch sticky candy to eat ... and then promptly got it on my wooden knitting needles whilst knitting. But thanks for such a fun time, and yes, perhaps we can all send you a list of "who" we want "in the barn". You then need to set up a bar/coffee bar inside for all of us, w/the "famous" knitters on a stage, knitting furiously away for us. Great discussion also of Xmas family traditions ....:)
best for the holidays!
