  1. Hi Clare, I didn't notice any lip smacking and the ums didn't bother me at all. I do have to defend the squirrels. I've been feeding squirrels for many years and they are very smart and quite entertaining to watch. My cats love to watch them too.
    Keep up the good work,

  2. hi Clare, I finally got to watch this episode, and long after the bacon butty!!! :))
    Very enjoyable. The tension square for the JUMPER is very pretty. I haven't done adult Fair Isle, so can't advise on measuring. Seems to be only us Brits that have knitted jumpers, apparently, that word is used to describe a pinafore in the US. Ah well, takes all kinds.
    Have you searched for entrelac socks? Must be someone who can advise on colourway.

    take care,

  3. Are you on iTunes yet or do you plan to be? Thanks!
