  1. Hi, David! I happened to find that the “Spotswood” movie was released in the US under the name “The Efficiency Expert” in case anyone over here is interested in viewing it. I love your podcast!

  2. Hi David –
    Sticks & String remains one of my favorite podcasts. Thanks for the commitment to keeping it going and the consistency of it!!

    If you haven’t located the Addi Cro-hook (or whatever it’s called). My LYS has it – the only size they have is US sz 3 needle on one end and a C hook on the other. They had 32″ – I didn’t check to see if there were other lengths. I’d be happy to pick one up for you and ship it.

    In fact, if there are any non-Australian-shipping-companies that you’d like to order from, I’d be happy to send you my address and then send them on to you. I have no idea what shipping costs would be, but I can ship DHL at a reduced rate thru my company.

    – Debra
