To help my Velynda Cardigan's loose neckline, Misiula & Nancy suggested I try the Yarn Harlot's crochet reinforcement technique… genius!

  7. As usual, I love your podcast, and the links you include in your shownotes. Thanks. The yarn is an unusual color for me - it would help me step outside my comfort zone of colors.

  22. Thanks for letting us discover a new dyer (you're evil... now I found a new excuse to not knit from my stash and buy new yarn!). Plus it's organic wool, so how could it be better?!!

  24. Hi,

    Oh my little pattern got featured! YAY!
    (FYI, the pattern itself only calls for ~200 yarns of each colour but Ravelry adds it up to be 400-500 yards total... weird)

    Also, for the rest of January, use the coupon "Yarngasm" on my ravelry store for $1 off :)

    Happy Knitting

  26. Sorry to hear the velynda cardigan turned out a little on the big side, but great you got some tips to help with the neckline!

    Don't know if the competition is open to international commenters (the UK in my case)? But I'd love to win the gorgeous yarn :)

  27. Love the yarn! Thank you for the post :) Yes we need more knitting podcast!

  30. I love the yarn. I went to her etsy shop and I think this was my favorite of all she had. Glad you're going to do more podcasting!

  31. I have some serious sweater fear - still haven't knit one because I'm afraid it won't fit! This fear does not stop me from buying sweaters' worth of yarn unfortunately.

    Love the yellow/grey? sock yarn - it's gorgeous! Thanks for the opportunity to win it!

  34. I find your podcast interesting to listen to. I think the Stash Bust Army is a great idea. I seem to always buy extra yarn for a project, just in case, but then never am quite sure what to knit with the leftovers. I love the yarn, a quite unique colorway. It is just itching to get into MY stash.
