    I have just started using itunes and ipod. Your podcast was the first I subscribed to after seeing it in the Lion Brand Newsletter in my e-mail. I have been loading on previous podcasts as I enjoy them so much. I am going to play them for the ladies I quilt with because most of them also knit and/or crochet but they do not use the internet. Thank you for providing great information and ideas!

    Thanks for all the wonderful tips and great pattern ideas to view! A special thank you for talking about substituting yarns – I often want to pick other colors for patterns. I also like the textures and color nuances created by combining yarns. You mentioned that 2 strands of #4 weight yarns equals 1 strand of #6 weight yarns. Do you know of a chart you can direct me to that gives other weight combination equivalents?

    Thanks again!

    Zontee says: Hey there JSW, I don’t have a chart to offer you, but the other common yarn weight equivalents are:

    - Two strands of category #1 = one strand of category #2
    - Two strands of category #2 = one strand of category #4

    Hope that helps!

    Hi. I enjoy surfing through your site and i have printed so many of the patterns becoz they are really nice n cute. However, since i am in India, its tough for me to get the yarns that you specify in the patterns. How can i get them if i really wanna work on the patterns u have listed?

    Don’t worry- the podcast doesn’t just get lost in the yarncrafting void- you have listeners and blog readers too!

    I don’t know why, but episode #24 isn’t showing up on Itunes! I hope it will show up soon, I am dying to listen! (I have heard the 23rd and 25th…)

    Thanks so much for making such a great blog/podcast!

    Hi Arlette, unfortunately, we don’t have any distributors in India right now, but we have distributors and stores that carry our products around the world, so encourage your local yarn distributors to look into carrying Lion Brand.

    Hi Shannyn, looks like episode #24 is now on iTunes, so you should be able to get it. But if you have trouble, click on the blog post for episode #24 for more info on how to download it directly and import it to iTunes.

    Hi Cat, we’ll definitely be in touch!

    Thanks for all the comments, everyone!

    I’ve been listening to you guys from the start, and I love that the longer the podcast continues the more comfortable the two of your sound. The most interesting parts are always when you offer spur of the moment comments and feed off of what each other says.

    Thanks for the tip on deciding how much of a substitute yarn to buy based on yardage. I’ve often wondered whether yardage or weight was a better guide.
