Fabulous show, as usual. Thank you! I just wanted to say hello and comment on the fact that I have the absolutely opposite problem with knitting needles. My preferred size needles are actually the smaller ones. Since I'm a mostly (these days) a sock and lace knitter, I find that I prefer to work on size 0-3's. In fact I am finishing up my Tilted Duster (I'm having a great time and it's turning out great) I find that my hands are getting tired from using the big needles. I even had to go down to a size 8 to get gauge.

Loving the show!

Thanks for mentioning my bag. It still hasn't been given yet, but I'll make sure and keep you posted on how she reacts... she gets her birthday present early, she'll get it on Saturday. Love your show, it always helps brighten my work days :)

Hello. I like your enthusiasm. You're enthusiastic even as you put down socks, expensive bulky yarn, etc. I enjoy your podcast. If you don't like tiny needles, why not knit socks on worsted weight yarn? I had to learn on my own. Lessons were expensive and unhelpful and confusing. Anyway, I found sockknitters 101 on the internet. You can do a knitalong project or print out their step-by-step lessons and do it at your own pace. I wanted to learn on cheap yarn, so I found a bell lace pattern using wool-ease. Fast and you can see your mistakes almost immediately, unlike on 0s or 1s. There are other worsted weight socks on line. If you'd like, I could send you some links. These are fast and, therefore, perfect for 5-year-olds or other little and not-so-little kids, who want it NOW. Also, wool-ease and cotton-ease is great for kids who poke through toes on socks quickly.

Hope this helps.
