  1. I've really been enjoying your podcast so far! My only question is.....just how many siblings are there? It seems that everytime you mention a brother or sister, it's one that you hadn't mentioned before! Must be a big family. :)

    I'm looking forward to many more future episodes.


  2. Loving the podcast! I enjoy knitting to it:). Would you guys consider doing an episode featuring baby/kid pattern trends? What is cool and funky/ easy etc. I'm always looking for new ideas.

  3. I'm glad I found the blog to go with the podcast! I'm still waiting to see your Slippers- have you started them yet?

  4. I just discovered your podcast so I'm working on listening to them in order, but I wanted to stop over and let you know that I am really enjoying it. You both are very easy to listen to. I love the "accents"--my family is from northern MN near Duluth and so it sounds like home to me. :)

  5. Hello! I wanted to let you know I love hearing the MN accent! My family and I lived in New Hope, MN for three-ish years, which were also the years I was learning to speak. So, when I listen to your podcast, the MN accent comes back. It's pretty funny! I feel like I'm listening to old friends from MN days talk when I hear you two. Keep up the great work on a great podcast!
