#108 She-Knits watches the buds.

Thank you Shirley, Noyla, KnittyBarb, Judy, Robin, LJWT, Carol in NJ, Debbie, NDN Girl, Jenn, Katie ). Animal Engineer, Pamela, Carla, Sallyciz for leaving comments in the previous post. Thank you for taking the time to respond to some of my questions, I so enjoyed reading your responses.

So long sweet were a great dog!

I have Koigu for the first time!

Will I get hired by a yarn shop? Will I want to be hired ? Will I be rejected?

No comments? THAT can't happen! So, I want to know... Did you get the yarn shop job? How is it going?!?!?

I'm so sorry about Daisy. I had to make the same decision with my Golden Retriever years ago and he had a similar reaction that Daisy did after that shot. I know exactly how you feel and my heart goes out to you. I now have a nearly 14yo lab mix who thankfully, is still doing very well, but I know that I'll be in that position again someday. It's such a hard decision to make, but these dogs bring so much into our lives that it's worth the heartache in the end. Remember the good things. =) Someday you might be ready to bring another furry kid into your life.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had to make that decision years ago with a golden retriever and he had a similar reaction that Daisy did. I know exactly how you feel, my heart goes out to you. I'm dreading that day coming around again - I have a 14yo lab mix now who thankfully is doing very well, but I can see him slowing down the past couple years and know that day will come someday. It's such a hard decision to make, but all they bring into our lives is totally worth the bit of heartache in the end. =)

So sorry to hear about Daisy. I prefer to stay at home too. I like J.D. Robbs and I am looking forward to reading all of the books in order some day (as well as many other authors).

Hi Sharon,
I just listened to your latest podcast on the train to work! Thanks for a great show!
I am Danish and I live in Denmark and we have a monarchy as well as in the UK - and it might be expensive to maintain, but it is a great part of our heritage and culture! So yeah, it's a lot of money, but then again when our crown prince was married all (most) all Danes felt a part of it and enjoyed it…
I will definitely check out the ChiaGoo-needles!! Even though they do not seem to have a distributor in Denmark… I might be able to find them online with in the European Union and note have to pay taxes.
The most extravagant thing I ever bought – knitting-wise – was my Rosewood-Knit Picks needle set… I mostly by yarn when it’s on sale or I am on a festival or the likes..
I never actually attended any classes in yarn shops – we do not do much of that in my country, but I have attended classes/workshops at knitting festivals I have attended and really enjoyed it. I mostly like workshops about a new kind of technique or way of putting colours together etc. But as I have not attended that many - I guess that I am not the right person to ask 
Keep up the good work – I am looking forward to the next show already!
All the best,
Marie in Denmark
