Awesome reveiws & podcast :)

Dawn said...

Will miss hearing you until March! Might see you around that time though!:) Love you lots and give Ava a hug for me!

Mindy said...

Great episode!

And I'm glad I'm not the only one...

I did the same thing with my Mara shawl that you did with the Damson. I noticed a yo mistake a few rows past it, tried to unravel and couldn't get it to work and then had to unknit 2 or 3 rows to get back to it and fix it the right way.

Uggh, it was frustrating!

Lauren said...

I had no idea there were so many types of Madelinetosh. I've used the Worsted and loved it. Thanks for another good episode.

CeRae said...

Ooooh, I felt almost famous for a second when you mentioned my name on your podcast ;)
I couldn't agree with you more about Madelinetosh's colors - they have so much soul, and I love them. I will definitely be knitting with MT again and again.
Thanks for another fun and informative podcast. Have a Happy Holiday and Happy Podcast Break.

Congrats to the winners! ;-)Especially my friend, Michelle!

Will miss you until March, but glad that you are getting regular, refreshing breaks! I hope there is much fun family time while you are "off the air!"

Juliaknit said...

Great podcast! I look forward to hearing you again in March.

Connie, the daisyhead said...

As usual, great podcast!

I loved hearing from Myra Wood. I need to go look for her book. I feel inspired to try some crazy, freeform lace. I've been a crocheter for most of my life (since I was a young girl) and freeformed all the time. I don't crochet much anymore due to wrist pain. I guess it's for my knitting to take up the freeform slack. ;o)

Thanks for the inspiration! Both of you!

Michelle B said...

Yay! I can't beleive I won! I so wanted that book so hooray!

I love the podcast, will miss you till march!

Carmen said...

Have a good break! thanks for the yarn review!

Shelley Voight said...

I must say that Myra really is a fantastic instructor, and is very inspiring! It was great to listen to the interview.

Jill Warren said...

I am so happy to hear your podcast every two weeks. I will miss you till March!

What a wonderful interview! I have never dipped my toe in the lace "pond" before. I am inspired. Crazy Lace sounds right up my alley. Thank you!

Jen said...

Great episode! I will miss listening to you during the break but I hope you have a great holiday and lovely winter!

Jersey Shore Deb said...

Great episode, I will definitely miss it between now and March.
I will have to use every ounce of willpower not to buy any of the Madelinetosh after your review....but my stash is bursting out of my closet. It will definitely be among the first things I buy once I whittle down the stash.

StaceyKnitsIt said...

Looking forward to the podcast next March. Great episode, interview, and prizes!

Patti said...

I only recently found your podcast. I've tried out many, and yours is easily one of the best. I'll definitely miss listening for the next few months. Enjoy your time off. Happy holidays!

I've been dying to try Madelinetosh! I completely agree with you the colors are so beautiful and unique.
Thanks again for the podcast, can't wait to hear from you again! :)

Claire said...

What a great show! I loved hearing about free form lace knitting, I'm so going to get Mara's book! Her list of work is incredible, I checked out the link to her site of graphic design projects, WOW!! The Madeline Tosh yarn colors are absolutely beautiful, can't wait to get some!!

Have a great couple of months off!!

Moknita said...

Enjoy your break. Myras interview was very enlightening- would like to read the book.

Kristin said...

Sad this season is over, but already looking forward to the next!

yolan said...

great podcast. am inspired to try my hand at lace knitting. love the idea of free form. will wait for the drawing before i buy the book. have a great hiatus and look forward to hearing you again in march.

Sara said...

This was a great interview! I listen to a few knitting podcasts and whenever there is a interview I always feel like it is rushed and only a few basic/same-old questions are asked. But with your interviews (even though I know you say you are nervous) they feel more natural and the questions more varied. Keep up the great work.

WickedPyssa said...

Im not sure if I can wait till March. Have a great vacation!

Victoria said...

Myra really inspired me to start some lace projects. That was a great interview. I can't wait to order some maelinetosh yarn it sounds wonderful. Thank you Alana!

Jane C said...

Linda Dupont said...

Well I've listened to the last cast several times now.
REALLY missing you!
I love the interview with Myra (so inspiring!) and so far, I have resisted buying Madeleine Tosh Tannehill..... but it can't last.

I'm doing my own project during ravelympics (Infinity Scarf in Malabrigo) but I'm keeping in touch with your blog and others.

How I LOVE your daughter holding the sticks :D
Can't wait to see what little animal you're knitting.
"see ya" in March.
