Another great episode-I have been a fan for ages now-I might have to get that book as well!


hi, i'm a huge fan of the podcast, always gives me creative inspiration and rad new ideas.... just wanted to comment about this episode - the whole concept of using cheap yarn and putting the weight on color and design - i was sooo into that, replying "yeah!" to the speakers in my car. i've always designed knit + crochet things with color and shape in mind, using whatever yarn is cheapest for the project, going against everyone else in the knitting world (so it seems). my most used yarn is caron's simply soft at around 3 bucks a skien. i, like you, love to browse expensive yarn shops and knit special items with super soft special yarns once in awhile, but for the most part, just give me a ball of recycled thrift store yarn and i'll make something cool out of it. (examples of my cheap-yarn-designs can be seen here.) it was so great to hear a successful designer/creator seconding my thoughts on this issue! yay!


You are my kind of knitter/crocheter, Leethal! Your camera carrier is absolutely genius.


I've listened to it before, I'm listening to it now, and it's marvelous!
