Thank you for sharing the story with the "Stitch in the hard times" theme- I came back to knitting while sitting through a loved one's illness, and I think I have another time like that in the near future. Knitting really helps, as does reading. I am a huge Jane Austen fan, and I have made socks and a shawl from earlier editions of Jane Austen Knits. I would love to win this giveaway! Thanks for podcasting.
