Episode 56 - Sunset at the beach

We recorded episode 56 at the beach. Sometimes evening recording calls for inventive recording locations but we always enjoy the views. This time we were lucky again to spy some dolphins swimming in the bay. No matter how many times I see dolphins frolicking, they still bring a smile to my face.

Gayle and I are attending a local fiber industry event called Stitches West this week. We will be there several days and it is the one big fiber event that we attend every year without fail. If you are in the west and attending, please don't hesitate to look for us and say "hi." If you attend other fiber events, you can understand our excitement!

Thanks to everyone who answered our request for iTunes written and star reviews. We appreciate it! If you live outside the US please know you can still review the podcast, though your review shows up in the iTunes store of the country where you reside. We may not see them all (mainly because we won't know it is there!) but we are grateful for the support and kind words.

So sit back, pick up your knitting, and enjoy the podcast!

  1. I wanted you to know that I really do appreciate the work you do to put up the show notes. I use them nearly every episode to find all of the patterns you talk about. Thank you.
