  1. David,
    I really enjoyed listening to your podcast today. I got a kick out of your monologue on knitting being trendy especially since I hear from some family and friends that I am going through a “knitting phase” (I think they just secretly hope I’ll stop talking about yarn!)
    Keep up the good work. I’m farmgirl27 on Rav.

  2. Just want to thank-you for the reviews of the Rowan yarns
    Rowan had been added to my don’t buy list along with Reynolds/JCA, Mountain Colors and Tahki
    It is really getting ridiculous the number of balls/skeins of yarn that have knots in them – something that use to be a rarity is now commonplace
    Oh well, apparently the current yarn frenzy ensures that every ball of yarn will be sold no matter the lack of quality control

    Love the podcast – i’m always behind in my listening since i do subscribe to so many
