    I’m so glad that you mentioned that podcasts get paid by blip or whatever they use rather than iTunes who don’t pay you. I”m like you, I can’t send in donations, but if I can watch a videocast and help offset costs by watching via their blog, I’ll do it. So many of the videocasts that I watch now won’t play on my iPod anymore, so this helps out the podcasters and it gives me an excellent reason to check out the show notes, too!
    Also wanted to thank you for explaining that bit about snapping the silk fibers. I have to admit that I was knitting on a project during your show and was in a troubling spot at the time, so I was listening but not watching. That is until you mentioned catguts. Then I had to pay attention! LOL I’ve learned a lot watching your pocast and what you do to run your business. NOt sure how you do it with teaching during the day and dyeing your yarn/fiber at night. You’ve got a great husband who definitely supports your “habit” and your business!
    Thanks for a great podcast that I love to watch! Katie (Knitting on the fly) sent me your way a while back and I’m so glad I listened to/watched her! Talk about an enabler! She a “one-man” salesforce! LOL
