  1. Well I sure would like this yarn & pattern kit. Miriam Felton & I follow each other on Twitter and it would sure be sweet to get to knit up one of her patterns!

    Please. Pretty please?

  2. Beautiful yarn! I would love to own it

  3. love that yarn, such a pretty color :)

  4. Hello Ursa, I love your podcast.! I found out about it some time ago. Over the past weeks I have listened to the earlier episodes, thinking about the themes and checking out the patterns. In this episode I was very amazed about the salmon-ceder relation. The variety of the content of your episodes makes it something to look forward to. Keep on podcasting!!
    Thank you for doing this!
    Best wishes, Marianne H from Nijmegen, the Netherlands

  5. The yarn is so beautiful. I would love the chance to knit the shawl with it.

  6. I love the idea of doing an "advent-calendar" style puzzle! I'll have to try to remember that for next year - or find maybe I'll condense a 24-piece puzzle into 12 days.

    And that yarn is gorgeous!

  7. I am a BIG fan of Mim's patterns. I would cast on for it immediately!

  8. Yet another lovely podcast lamb!
    Knitting is... space to breathe; whether I'm plugged in to an audiobook, podcast, movie, tv show, sitting with friends, or completely unplugged and silent, knitting keeps my hands busy so my mind can relax and wander. Non-knitters just wouldn't get it :P

  9. I can't believe you're on number 10. I've listened from the start and always look forward to the next episode. I don't need another reason to keep checking your site but thank you for continuing your fabulous giveaways.

  13. I just wanted to say I adore your show. The melding of spirituality and knitting is very well done. Not in-your-face, just lovely. I liked the segments on the beach, and also the focus on the seasons and how you celebrate and work with the changes. Also, it would be totally awesome to win some yarn! Happy solstice, happy new years, and enjoy the time off (after the next episode, anyway...) :)
