  1. Staci, thought you might like to know that on their website, under the How to Help > Creating an Item they have a link to your youtube tutorial on weaving in ends. Nice connection!

  2. Just ordered yarn from Turtlepurl Yarns. Can’t wait to get it to foster my OCD problem with matchy, matchy stripped socks!! Love the interview about Alzheimer’s – I have done knitting for Socks for Soldiers and this looks like another good cause. Glad to hear about it. Love your podcast and LOVE your UTube videos!!!!!
