  1. First, I must say, you are so nice !
    But not boring nice :)

    So sorry for pour audio quality, I had a problem understanding you (English is not my mother tongue...)

    But, I enjoyed very much your previous videos ! Don't worry about the video lenght... I'm sure in time you will find more things to speak about... :)

  2. I totally agree with Magrit.
    I really adore you!

    And you can be very proud of your spinning progress.
    My, you decide very fast.
    I thought I was a quick decider and you far out :)

    What is your group at Ravelry.
    I want to compeed for the yarn or is it only for americans?
    I think about starting my own podcast and maybe I will post it tomorrow on my blog.
    Totally inspired by you, we will see

  3. Congratulations on the new wheel. I've heard you can't go wrong w/Schacht. FYI: I don't know if anyone else experienced this but the sound on this last episode was very low. I set my laptop to the highest volume and it wasn't enough. Just wanted to let you know. Can't wait for the next episode.

  4. Such a great podcast. Found you via Highland Handmades. Love the latest tip on Short tail cast on. Dah..of course! So excited for you and your spinning wheel purchase. Nice job with the videocast. Loving it.
