  1. I am amiyesiam on Rav and I am so happy you are back!

  2. Happy anniversary! I'm MayaMoonie on Ravelry.

    I signed up for Carol's Short Rows class but haven't had a chance to go through it yet. You've whetted my appetite, though!

  3. Happy anniversary. I am so glad you are back to podcasting.

    My name on Ravelry is raspberrycattgirl.


  4. Welcome back. I have signed up for the short row class but won't be able to start until my deadline knitting is done. That's the great thing about Craftsy, you can start and stop at your own pace.

  5. So glad you're back! Happy anniversary! My rav name is icefireski!

  6. just started listening to your podcast and I LOVE it! ^_^ I'm a crocheter myself but I have dabbled in some scarf knitting and you (and my boyfriend) make me want to learn more and make somethings! ^_^

    oh and I'm silentmist on ravelry :3

  7. Happy Anniversary! I signed up for Carol's short row class and the Celtic Cable Class. I can't wait to get started.

  8. Welcome back to the podworld! That orange yarn is DIVINE! I love listening to your podcasts. Yarn and pagan stuff, the best ever! :-)
    I'm now known as Naamah13 (formerly known as gwenifyr27) on Ravelry.

  9. I would love to win either of your offers. Maybe the yarn moreso as I'm originally from the Netherlands. My husband keeps asking why I don't have more orange things as a Dutch woman.

    I'm Dutchgirl63 on Ravelry too.

    Keep up the awesome podcasts.

  10. Glad to see you back! I am also at home with two small kids this summer, so I have great sympathy for being extra-busy this time of year. Love that orange yarn!

  11. Love your podcast. That yarn is lovely. I am Turtleknits on Ravelry.

  12. I just got referred to your podcast from "the Pagan Homesteader". Its good to hear from a fellow Canadian. Im from the other side of the country.

    Cheers from Toronto

  13. I just listened for the first time last night, as i was knitting my grown son a sweater from some brown Romney fleece i bought a year ago, and spun into a sort of medium sized yarn. A very interesting and enjoyable podcast- i plan to download them all as i knit my way through this project. Glad i found you- haven't heard much of the pagan side yet. I'd love to be in the drawing, for the fiber, which i can never get enough of-it would make a lovely shawl, i bet. Blessings- i am ruthsmom on Ravelry

  14. I am a new-ish listener and I absolutely love your podcast! The yarn is absolutely beautiful. I am LuckyOrangeLiz on Ravelry.

  15. Happy Anniversary. Rinebird on ravelry
