    8. This was my first episode of the podcast--I'll definitely go back and listen to earlier episodes. I've always wanted to try Vesper, and my favorite striping yarns have black in them. The black stripe looks cute with my Converse or my Mary Janes.

    22. Hi! I loved your essay on Samhain. I listened to it on the way home from work today and your words really brought Samhain to life for me. I am really enjoying your podcasts. What was the music that you played at the end of the podcast before you gave your contact info? It was beautiful. I'm HeatherD on Ravelry

    23. I'm a new listener to your podcast, but am really enjoying it! Your Samhain essay was lovely. It really helped me to understand why November always feels so crummy for me, and the purpose and hope underneath all the ending and dying.
