  1. I like your new setup, it's very nice! :)

  2. We had a backyard wedding, too! It was lovely and relaxed and the food was awesome.

    Your Citron is gorgeous!

    Regarding saying the pattern name/designer/needle size: I agree with you that needle size is not important. I don't always say needle size on my podcast b/c 1) I don't remember :) and 2) my gauge is loose and not going to be like anyone else. That said, I think that if someone is using really big or really small needles it would be fun to say just for the wow factor. "Wow! She's knitting on size 000! or size 50 something!" Or if you are purposely altering a pattern to have a much looser or tighter gauge, then I think it would be good to say the needle size.

    I like how you put the pattern name in the text bars. Designer is nice to have but as long as it's an easy to find pattern on Ravelry or you've provided a link from shownotes, it's all good.

    I love your show! You provide lots of great info and interesting tidbits.

    Take care,
    Theresa (aka knitsinpublic)

  3. Just discovered your blog! Nice! I'm especially excited about your list of podcasts because I'm looking for a few more ones that I can watch while I'm knitting! Love your Citron and you spin beautifully! I'll probably have to watch more of your episodes but I have to say I'm quite intrigued by the background. Is that all your stash? Hi, hi! I'll be back!
