Episode 40 - Best Laid Plans

The original title of this episode was going to be "Road Trip" for reasons which will become apparent once you listen. But even the best of plans have a way of falling apart sometimes, don't they? Thwarted by the heat of the 100 degree day, our plans to record while visiting yarn stores went out the window, and the secondary plan to finish recording once we returned to the bay and its cooling breezes flew out the other window after Gayle got the "come rescue us!" phone call from her stranded husband. So. Best laid plans. We call it a wrap almost 48 hours later and give you a little recap. Hope it doesn't come across too disjointed!

Gayle and I are excited to share two special things with you. First, we are going to be beta testers for Amy Herzog's new CustomFit software. (See links below.) Second, we have decided on a KAL based on the Pantone colors for Fall 2013. Details on the podcast and to follow in our Ravelry group.
