    My son Zach wanted all to know that those “scarfy-things” he mentioned in your podcast are boas. They are made holding two strands of Lion Brand’s Fun Fur together and then woven on the fingers to desired length. By mixing and matching colors, the boas are a quick and easy project to make.

    I blogged about their boa-ing fun here.

    It was great seeing you @ the Conference in Buffalo!
