  15. Thanks for another great episode! Made me hungry! I loved the story about the dowsing rod. . . and the interview was great too. I would love to be in the contest--love the bag (would like to not use a plastic bag for a change. . .) and the bluebird Squoosh would be nice in my next daybreak shawl. . .

  16. I cannot tell you HOW MUCH I love your podcast. I keep plugging you on mine. Ursa, I love your content. You are becoming one of my absolute all time favorite podcasts to listen to. Thank you.

    I would like to be in the contest, if I could. Blue is my favorite color and so if I got a choice, that would be it. :) I'm kniftyknit75 on Rav and my email is fiberandfabricpodcast@gmail.com.

    Thanks for your awesomeness.

    P.s. Um...yeah...just realized how crazed fan this post sounds. Um, I swear that I'm not! Just enthusiastic about what you're doing. :)

  17. Loved this episode! "The Water Is Wide" is a favorite of mine. I played it through twice (till tears were streaming down my face!) feels good to let go once in a while, right?
    The project bag is so sweet, and I love all the yarn choices, but especially the Bluebird.
    Thanks again for a beautiful podcast.

  30. I've just found your podcast and I love it. I'm neither religious or spiritual at all, but I am very interested in religions and I teach religion at primary school as well. So knitting and pagan is a very exciting combo!
