Laurie in Maine said...

Wondered while listening to the very moving story if "chine" is a play on "sheen"/pronounced like "machine"? ;)
Knitting IS the best medicine... especially the occasional mindless kind! I ended up with about 15 colorful cotton dish clothes before deciding I was ready to move on. (They ARE very useful, even if they remind me for the first 4 or 5 I needed to look at/reprint the darn 3 line pattern again & again!!)

Colleen McKean said...

I so enjoyed looking at your picture and commentaries. You have beautiful patterns and I am getting inspired to challenge myself.

Matthew B. said...

Great show, again! I love that you do the listeners' stories, and i definitely identify with the occasional need to knit something simple for relaxation. The fox is really cute and I'm glad your son has found a knitted item he can love. I've never tried knitting anything with silk, but I'd be willing to try anything that's not novelty yarn.
Can't wait for the next episode!

I have never knit with 100% silk, although I have knit with some lovely silk blends (50/50 with wool). Kind of you to offer all of us a chance at giving this yarn a try.

Enjoy the podcast; I listen at work (stocking shelves overnight at Target) and it is fun to hear and think about knitting when I can't be participating!

tinkarella said...

Hello! I am a new listener and just wanted to mention that "Indochine" is the French word for Indochina, referring to that region in the world that was colonized by the French. It is pronounced roughly 'an-doh-sheen'... although that is only rough because there is no English equivalent of the 'in'.

Thanks for a nice podcast!
