Again thank you to Robert of Bobville.com who fixed my audio for me. He does audio, websites, etc. contact him if you have needs...he whores his talents for money. And yes, he actually told me that today. He has some AMAZING work and I recently voiced something for him that will eventually come out.

Hey, chica! It's Cara. I thought I'd check out your podcast even though I don't know a damn thing about knitting. It is taking me too much energy to click on the actual podcast tonight, so I will have to save it for another day. BUT, katydidknits lives in my same town!!

Hi again! I was listening to your podcast & had a comment but now that I'm at the computer, I can't remember it. Story of my life.
I do enjoy your conversational tone. You keep focused enough on yarn stuff for me.
I "accidently" learned how to do magic loop. I took a 1 session class about an entrelac bag & they said to bring a 40" circular needle. That was way too long. A 27" would have been better. As I was fighting with too few stitches on too long a cord a loop popped out on it's own. The phrase "magic loop" came to my mind so I kept knitting with it that way. It was easier than the way I had been doing it but I wound up just transferring to a shorter needle.

Keep up the good work & good luck with the move.

PS: Do you have a button or graphic for the show? I was adding buttons with links to the podcasts I listen to & couldn't find one for you.
