Listen here or use the Flash Player on this site for current and past episodes.
This show by sponsored by my Longaberger Home Business and Quince & Co.
The folks at Quince & Co believe that businesses can be good citizens—should be good citizens—without making too much a fuss about it. So, they have created a line of thoughtfully conceived yarns spun from American wool or sourced from earth friendly overseas suppliers. Find them at and while you are there, sign up for their free e-newsletter.  Wool 3 has just been released with gorgeous new designs!

A special welcome to new listeners from A Playful Day Podcast.  Thank you Green Triangle Girl for the interview and for sending new listeners my way.
Please excuse our faulty brain synapses due to Camp KIP Decompression, hissing noise from microphone being too close to laptop, and the emergency siren!

Liesl by Ysolda Teague.  I’ve knitted two of these but I liked Allison’s version in longer length with long sleeves. 
Koigu Beaded Beret by Church Mouse Yarns and Teas knitted and worn by Angela of Fleur de Fiber.  Great way to use left-over sock yarn is it calls for 175 yds.

Hi Paula, Charr & Bronwyn!

I so enjoyed this episode..the laughter and stories took me back to Camp KIP. What a wonderful time.

Thank you for mentioning the various patterns knitted and worn by attendees. My Queue has grown dramatically! And speaking of "queues"... I so appreciated the tutorial by Bronwyn. I will have to organize mine now.

I am so glad to have been directed to your podcast. I never fail to pick up a tip, learn a new technique and I now try remind myself to stop and look around my backyard at the beauty that is there.

Thank you again,

Julia Fitzsimmons
