EXCELLENT podcast! So damned enjoyable and informative.

I know you are committing yourself to the eyelash scarves, but...if you really REALLY don't want to do them, I actually love working with eyelash and fun fur, and that's what i've been using for my women's shelter fun scarf project. So...just tossin' that out there.

I'd like the info on the prayer shawl program, though I don't think I'll get to it till mid-May at this point.

Thank you once again for pimpinating crafting for a cause. You rock :) You might want to mention in your blog the Crafting for Hokies project we're doing tied to the WUA project, just in case people want to go that route.

In short, you are awesome. And i agree with Virtuous...you need to post up some pics :)

((huggles))

Hee! You told the story of my raped yarn! The best part was when I told her I didn't want it wound and she said "what are you going to do? Hide it under your bed?" No bitch, I'm gonna knit it. Just not right now. Sheesh.

GAH! I missed that part of the story. Seriously. Some people don't deserve to be around all that yarn.
