    Thanks so much for offering the Making Stories giveaway. I love Fluent–it would be my first cast on from the magazine, not to mention my first sweater. 🙂 I’ve recently found your YouTube channel and am enjoying making my way through your archive. Thanks for sharing your work and your expertise with us.

  2. I’m 100% behind you on the USA-only giveaway for the Making Stories magazine (even though I’m in the UK). I love to see all the great hand-dyed yarns etc on American podcasts, but I stick to ordering from UK hand-dyers because of the whole shipping side of the equation. I am more than happy to buy items manufactured abroad if a shop has imported them in bulk into the UK. I know it’s still wasteful, but it’s a bit better than having things shipped individually. Loved this epsode of your podcast; it’s always a pleasure and an education spending a bit of time watching and listening to you.

    I love your show and greatly respect you and all the info you share. I even ordered the grab bag type tops from World of Wool and have had fun spinning it up. Thanks again. Kathie Dumont.

    My favorite is Inverse. I love to knit sweaters. I sent a previous message but forgot to put in my fav. I’m not slick with all this email phone computer stuff, but I’m getting there. Thanks. Kathleen Dumont.

    Oh my it’s so difficult to pick just one. I think I’ll go with Traversing by Adrienne Larsen. They are beautiful! Great podcast. Enjoyed the rag pile book. I think I saw her interviewed on a podcast at some point.
