    I was in a christmas knitting slump last night when I went to bed. This am I got up early, found your vidcasts and knitted away on my brother’s Andre Scarf which is intarsia. I was able to power thru 9 rows!!!! So exciting! Love your podcasts. My son is a big gamer so it makes me smile when Shaun talks. He has a 360 and loves his Black Ops. It came out on his bday so he was able to go to a launching party at a store near us and got it at midnt. Being 15, this was a big deal.
    I was trying to comment on episode 3 about the sock yarn book but couldn’t seem to get it right. I would love to be placed in the drawing!
    I live in Fl and just live to listen to people that are able to go to fiber festivals. I am hoping to make it to a stiches next year.
    Anyhoo… Love the vidcasts.

    I had been watching for your next espisode! Very cool. I am a respiratory therapist so when mucous was mentioned I felt right at home.

    I do the Gamefly for my 15yo and we love it. It is 22.oo a month and he is able to get 2 games at a time and he plays them as long or short as he wants. When he sends them back he gets antoher within 3 days. Curt(15) says to tell you it is awesome. I just can;t spend 60 on a game that he will beat in few days. This keeps everyone happy.

    Great knitting projects. Love the cowl.

    Great podcast! You guys remind me of me and my husband (he’s not a HUGE gamer but probably would if he had more time!).

    Keep the episodes coming!
