  2. FYI I have had the crochet hook/needle for many years maybe 20. I can’t remember where I got them, but they came in a case such as Bernat used for their circular needles many years ago. The label reads “PERLAC for lightweight yarn, size 1 needle, size b hook”. I have one for sport weight and worsted weight yarn. I forgot I had them until I heard you mention this item on your podcast which I enjoy very much. You are encouraging me to try fairisle knitting as this is something I have always wanted to do. I have been knitting for approx. 60 years and this is about the only thing I haven’t done. Anyway keep up the good work. I really enjoy listening to you.

  3. So great to hear you talk about St.Paul and Garrison Keillor! And yes, you are correct, we are called Minnesotans 🙂 And we can drive our cars on water, sadly our accents aren’t that great…

  4. I can’t download this episode 😦 Your next episode downloaded just fine, and so did the previous episode. iTunes just doesn’t like this one apparently.
