  1. Wonderful podcast, you are just adorable. I especially love the you seem to have a passion for sock knitting just like me.
    I love that you promoted ButterflyBush Yarns. I was lucky enough to discover Ruth's beautiful yarn and have purchased some really lovely sock yarns from her. Can't recommend her yarn enough, it knits up beautifully. She has a wonderful way with color!
