I have two large plastic bins, one for worsted weight and heavier and one for sport weight and lighter.  These bins mostly contain remnants of previous projects.  Within the bins, each type of yarn is kept in a zip lock bag.  More recent purchases are kept in zippered bags out of these bins in the same closet.

Paula, your podcast is so fabulous! Both the letter from Elizabeth and from your listener were so touching.
I was not aware of Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting. It looks beautiful. Thank you for letting us know about it and for the giveaway.

Paula:

Thank you for another wonderful podcast.

I have been knitting for less than a year, and I have yet to do an EZ project. Shame on me. Your podcast inspired me to get to one soon. How wonderful that you knew her.

Audubon: I enjoyed this segment.

Music, poetry was beautiful.

Greetings Paula, I've been listening for awhile, but this is my first comment. Your show is enjoyable and I look forward to each one. Thank you for sharing your letters with Elizabeth, and your life. Keep up the great work.

Hi Paula,
As always I really enjoyed this week's podcast. Yours has become the podcast that I look most forward to each week. This week I especially liked your story about the box in your son's closet and the mysterious BB gun holes in it. I have raised 2 sons also, so I can certainly relate. They could be little rascals and there was never a boring moment.

You are doing a fantastic job. Thanks for that.

Hi Paula,
One of the highlights each week is a new Pipeline episode. I think and dream knitting! Thank you for the kindness you show toward all of us Pipliners.

First they shoot holes in your fleece box, then they forget to dispose of the evidence!

I can relate to sending a baby sweater without buttons. It makes me feel okay to know that Elizabeth did it too!

Paula: Another great podcast and always brings a smile. BB practice in the house, really?

Although acrylic is a four letter word in some knitting circles these days, it is very soft and low maintenance and might be a good choice for a chemo hat. I've also recently knit with a wool called "mini mochi" that is soft as "buttah" and comes in the most tranquil and gentle color blends. Prayers ascending for your courageous friend.

Paula, I knit some caps for a friend using KnitPicks Comfy Worsted (very soft) with the free pattern off the KnitPicks website: Georgian Lace Cap by Kerin Dimeler-Laurence.

I enjoy your podcast!
