Hi Sharon!
I thought it was about time I told you how much I enjoy your podcast -which I listen to while I knit!
I just 'found' your podcast a couple of weeks ago so I started with episode #1 and just tonight finished episode #11.
Years ago I lived just outside Chicago so it's fun for me to hear you talk about it!
My knitting group meets on Sunday mornings for two hours in Starbucks and most of us knit mainly Rowan. I think it's time to branch out!!! What's on my needles? Rowan cardigan 'Regatta' in cotton Glace.
Peace!

Hey Sharon-
Thanks so much for the felting tips. i would have never thought about throwing in some flip flops. Not only would I get to felt something, but I would also get to make my flip flops oh so clean!

Sharon, thanks for a great podcast. I just love listening to you. I too have a front loading washer that I use to felt with. It was eerie listening to your tips because I do exactly the same things as you and found that it too takes me about an hour and I have the cleanest flip-flops in town.

You asked about swaps/exchanges. I'm in the middle of one right now. I'm a member of the Minnesota Knitters Guild (knitters.org)and we're doing a scarf exchange. At our August meeting, members brought 200-250 yards of yarn that they would like knit into a scarf. We anonymously chose someone else's yarn and we have two months to knit a scarf for them. Then at the October meeting, we show and tell the scarves we knit, talk about the pattern we chose and give then back to their owners. I think that this really works well because we're all held accountable (in front of the other members) to finish the project and bring it back on time. I can't wait to see my scarf!!

Keep up the great work!
