Next time you’re facing a lot of complex or troublesome repeats, make yourself a simple graph, so you always know where you are in your knitting.

I have a donate button on the blog, too, if you’d like to tip me.

  1. Glad to hear your mother is home, and father is healing. Hugs to you for being such a caring daughter.

    Thank you for taking the time to podcast.

  2. I'm glad the folks are doing better. (HUGS) to all of you.

    CT Sheep & Wool is Saturday, April 28th this year. I hope to see you there again.

    I went to the WEBS sale a couple years ago. Plan to spend a lot of time there. It was crazy. Bring a tote/shopping bag. There were no baskets/carts left to use when I got there. It took me over an hour to check out. They had 4 registers running and the lines were back into the wharehouse and winding through the aisles. There were outside vendors to shop as well. I'm passing on the sale but will be going up with friends in June. :)
