I've heard of "Second Sock Syndrome" but "Second Chicken Syndrome" game me a chuckle!!!

I love your podcast...Thanks for all of the work you do to produce it and provide it to us.

Kathy said...

Really enjoying your podcast. I thought the same thing about the Chicken!

Victoria said...

Love your podcasts. I was listening to the book review when my husband stuck his head in and asks my why I am listening to funeral music in a rather concerned voice.

I can't wait to get that book and see your polka dot chicken:)

desertnetti said...

Once again, loved the podcast - what will we do now that we're addicted during your hiatus!?! (she says with a pink face admitting that she has an addictive personality).

Audrey said...

I love the mitting story! I liked the book review too! =)

KrisW said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the gentleman chicken... even if he's white. :D The polka dots will be very handsome, I'm sure.
I ADORE mama chicken! :)

Carol said...

I love your podcast! Thanks for doing it! I don't have any local knitting friends, so it's nice to be able to listen to someone discuss their knitting experiences. Also, I love red and your Something Red Sweater inspired me to order the BSA dyed organic cotton and make one for myself!

Hi, The chicken is adorable. I like the artful way you take pictures of your projects! Always look forward to the pictures. Thanks

I think that this has become my favorite podcast. Thank you for the mitting story. Brings me back to those days with my not so little ones anymore.

Welcome back from Portland! Thanks for sharing more of your "mitting" news, expertise, and reviews with us.

Glad you found Donna's book. Her research is so interesting! Have you seen her cabled rug pattern? I think you can still find it free on line. Her April blog has a link to it, as well as the chart legend:

As always, great podcast. I, too, will miss you while you are taking your break, but I totally support it, too! I hope you have some great "down time" this summer!

Hey Alana,
I'm hopalogs MIL. She is a tad distracted at the moment, and only getting online at my house, so I wasn't sure if she saw she is a Winner. So I'm passing the message along to her...

Hi, I just discovered your podcast and LOVE it! So fun!

KnittyBarb said...

Great podcast Alana! Loved the "mitting" story. Can't wait to see the finished chicken #2...

Donna said...

Hi, new(ish) listener here. Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed this episode. I listened on my drive to work and got some odd looks as I giggled my way down the road when you were talking about the chicken!

Chris said...

HI Alana -

I like your podcast - the stories you tell always make me laugh. Thanks for the chance to win what sounds like a great book.

I think I'm addicted to your podcast. I downloaded all the other episodes in iTunes, loaded them on my iPod, and now I find myself happily ignoring the constant chatter of my four-year-old son because I'm listening to you!

I understand about knitting the same thing twice...hang in there! At least it's a chicken, not a shawl...

d said...

We'll miss you while you're gone, Alana. I've enjoyed every episode of your podcast so far and always look forward to the next! Savor the downtime!

KJ said...

I just started listening to your podcast- thank you for your hard work!

Your comment about the polyfill beads gave me a chuckle! It reminded me of the time my nephew (who is 2) got into a HUGE box of packing peanuts...let's just say I was finding them in the ODDEST places (behind the toilet? Under the stove?) for months!

NerdyMom said...

Loved the podcast, so sorry about the boring old chicken. Or is it a rooster? Why can't guys wear something a little new and different every once in a while? Sheesh. Well, enjoy your break! :-)

I am a new listener to your podcast, and am currently downloading ALL the rest of them!
You have such a sweet,(easy to listen to) voice :)
My daughter & I have just started knitting our first sweater together, and I know the Ethnic Knitting Book would be a HUGE help. I have even doubled my challenge, because I am spining alpaca & mohair for mine...whew!
Thanks for such a great review! Looking sooooo forward to more Podcasts...Thanks!
