    Just want y’all to know that I thoroughly enjoy each YarnCraft podcast and learn tons of yarn crafting information from every single episode. Please keep the podcasts coming!!!

  • Meg

    I am looking forward to knitting up some of the super patterns you have described. You do such a great job at keeping us informed. I love the podcasts. Just received a “yarn legacy” from my husband’s lovely aunt who died recently and left me all of her knitting and crochet yarns. What an amazing collection. I am thinking of her as I work my way through her many boxes!

  • Knitting Mama

    Look forward to the podcast to keep me company on my drive to and from work!  Thanks to Lion Brand for having all FREE patterns.  That is such a great service! 
    Thanks for the book reviews.  Anxious to get a copy of “The Knitters Book of Yarn.” I have substituted yarns and even though the gauge was correct, I have had projects that just didn’t work out.  I think this book will be a great resource.  Congratulations to Liz!!

  • Blax

    I look forward To each podcast. Liz and Zontee, you have inspired me to try projects I wouldn’t have before. On my list: Two at a Time Toes up sock knitting. I have to finish my other projects first. I would really like to hear about Lion Brand’s specialty yarns, especially the steel wool.

     Thanks for your comments, Blax! We’ll definitely keep them in mind for the future. In the meantime, consider listening to the “Stash This” segment of episode 76, in which we talk about some of the different LB Collection yarns, including Wool Stainless Steel.
