We’ll be putting out a new episode soon, but just not as soon as we’d hoped. We know you worry that something has gone awry when we don’t post every fortnight or so, but it just means that we’ve been busy with life and whatnot. Have faith that iTunes (or whatever fancy podcast fetcher thingee you rely on) will deliver our new episodes to you, and don’t worry about waiting up. :)

It’s too simple, too basic, too boring… a monkey could do it, so how could you be proud of it? BAHHHH! It’s the fundamental knitted fabric.
It’s what you’d teach a newbie.

It tames wacko colorways
It eats up yardage so you can use up crap yarn fast
