    Loved listening to the show today. Now I have to check out the patterns and maybe enjoy a twinkie while I do so. Thanks for all you do!

    Twinky! Love your podcast -thank you for inspiring and entertaining me on my walks. Would love to win your ebook. I was lucky enough to buy some of your yarn in a little shop in Abilene KS while visiting the US from NZ. I’m looking forward to your video tutorials on dying. Cheers Helen

    • Haha, thanks Helen!! I’m so glad you got to try some of our yarn too! Looking forward to sharing more dyeing with you in the future.
