    • Sorry never mind ladies 🙂 for some reason I couldn’t get it to go through when I tried. But this time it worked 🙂 technology, go figure!

  1. That was a really really nice episode. I love your podcast but this episode was especially nice. It wasn’t so much the subjects you talked about as the way you were talking and commenting about things. It felt that you were really relaxed and spontaneous or genuine, maybe is the right word, I don’t know. Anyway thank you for a very pleasant episode. Of course I thank you for the rest of the episodes too , also for all the effort you put on that.
    Anyway thank you guys and I hope you’ll keep doing these (podcast and videos) for a long long time.

    Lots of appreciation

  2. Nursing homes would welcome cheap acrylic afghans because they are usually washed in scalding hot water which would ruin nice yarns. So the lady who had tubs of cheap acrylic yarn could donate her Knitting for the residents.

    • Second that. See the last podcast for the Alice Blankets for some patterns.

      Also, sometimes nursing home they are looking for just the yarn for their residents, a few of whom still like to knit or crochet.

      And Staci and KC, you girls have just too much fun answering all these questions – you’re a hoot to listen to.

  3. OH EM GEE I really enjoyed this episode- my co-workers were side-eyeing me because I was laughing out loud.
    I wrote down some of the podcasts you recommended and of course, had to go to My Dad Wrote A Porno first- I am cracking UP!! Holy Mother of pearl ladies- it’s HILARIOUS so far! I have to get to work but you can be sure I will listen more after!
    Thanks for always inspiring, and enjoy the rest of your week!! ~Sharon

  4. Loved the podcast and the video on the Doppelt Hat. I tried using the coupon code this evening and it was rejected:
    “Coupon code “VPINK4KPC” is not valid.”
    Is there a different code that we can use?
