  1. I love knitting shawls…but I wear them more as shawlettes…or kerchiefs?
    But I’m about to knit myself a shawl using Thor colorway yarn and I’m going to wear that out as a cape…it’ll be a total kickass shawl
    but I don’t see myself EVER knitting or wearing spats…unless I was blind and forced to wear them with clamdiggers.

  2. This episode is hilarious!!! Made my time seaming (which I detest) more enjoyable.
    Jen, I felt so validated when you told the tale of the Charlie Brown Tee. I recently dumped a WIP in the garbage. It felt good. Nice to know I’m not the only one who chooses to “let go” rather than try to salvage a sinking ship.

    Shawls: I have made many (mostly the small, wrap around the neck kind.) I find I don’t actually wear them. I have not mastered the art of “just” throwing it around my neck. Some folks can do that and look incredibly chic and Parisian. I just look like a dork.

  3. Okay you two. Something weird is going on. You’re affecting my life. You’re affecting how I spend my time. Whodathunkit?

    1. I was delighted to be notified of the show notes. I was giddy and saddened. I wouldn’t listen cuz I was headphones-free in the home of my impressionable nieces and nephew. I knew Jane was going to let F bombs fly … amongst others …. so I had to wait for two days until I got home.

    2. Meanwhile, I went to that stupid (mindsucking) Raverly “why shawls” thread…thanks again Jane! and spent waaaaay too much time there until I realized I’d been led there by you and that I needed to stop. I got the gist early on … but I kept reading. Ravelry is like crack (Or like I hear crack is). I was so tickled when the moderators had to step in and I learned about DBAJ.

    3. I’m now listening to The Nerdist, queuing up a bunch of stuff in Ravelry, reattempting unraveling something (it worked after I cut the other end. Duh!), checking out mentioned podcasts and reading F–k Calories.

    Oh you girls. You’re affecting my life!
    This is almost as bad as when I got sucked in to “Lost” + Jay and Jack’s podcast. That was so fun! Ah memories.

    I’m digging your podcast. A lot. Thanks.
    Note: there’s only been one referral that I didn’t like one iota … but I’ll behave and not mention it.

    I’ll be listening and reading and being led around like a little lamb … oh, yeah … and knitting.

  4. Just heard you for the first time and loved it and I’m a picky podcast listener. There are so darn many knitting pod casts now, I’ve had to be most selective. Keep up the good work. I’ll go over to iTunes and leave 5 stars. One question, what were you talking about at the end that had to do with someone’s “to do” list? I’d like the link to the google docs.

    • Thanks for the comment and the feedback! On our Ravelry group I shared my to do list which can be seen at: . One of our listeners sent hers in for us to take a gander at. It’s not an actual google doc, Jen was just using google docs to view it. Since it’s someone’s personal to do list, I don’t want to share it without her permission.

  5. I’m making my way through all your podcasts – had to comment on this one – loved the ‘Tuppence a bag’ cowl comments, as an English chicky living in Australia I never tire of people trying (and failing) at the olde English accent. Had me laughing hard, and I needed a laugh today. Keep up the great work!!! I love listening to podcasts and you’ve got the balance exactly right. Keep them coming.
