  1. Just wanted to mention audiobooks. Since reading has been one of the major activities that suffer for knitting, I've been thrilled with the "discovery" of audiobooks. Interestingly (or not?) I've found that I retain info much better when I listen while knitting. I tend to read/listen to a lot of non-fiction, so I find this handy. I'm taking the opportunity to catch up on some classics that I never read (but should have).

    Just picked up your podcast over the weekend via itunes...oddly enough I'm from MN too (Richfield). I decided to branch out and try some knitting podcasts and happened to start with yours!
