  3. I just discovered your podcast and I’ve enjoyed it very much. But I have to say you don’t understand the purpose of yarn stashes. Must be a guy thing. My yarn stash cheers me up with I’m down and when I’ve had a bad day at work, I can come home and fondle my lovely wool and dream of what it might be one day. I may never actually make anything with it, but it is fun to dream. So, see, sometimes, yarn bought without a specific purpose, has a purpose by just sitting there looking lovely.

  4. I’m not exactly sure which episode it was that you spoke of this yarn but… Could you tell me what yarn you had that you said was a grey brown? It was kinda funny because you spoke of this yarn about 5 minutes after I had just got done thinking I would make my hubby a sweater if I could find a grey brown yarn because than it would look good with anything. Thank you for your time, your show is wonderful.
