Thank you to all of our new and returning listeners for hanging out with us today!  Here are links to things that we talked about in the show.  If we missed something, please let us know!

On Our Needles/Bobbins:

New In The Queue:

If I Was A Rich Girl:

Brittany: Spin Control by Amy King, Teach Yourself Visually Handspinning by Judith MacKenzie McCuin, Start Spinning by Maggie Casey (book), Start Spinning by Maggie Casey (dvd)


Our Goals For 2011:

Brittany: more sweaters!, learn to knit entrelac (Basic Entrelac Scarf), more yardage used up than brought into the stash, make something from handspun, make at least 6 pairs of socks (using her self-imposed sock club)

Dana: more socks and sweaters!, take on more challenging projects instead of just quick-knit things (mentions Mason-Dixon Knitting book and blog), knit down more of the stash and stop buying yarn without a purpose in mind, at least 90% of projects made from the stash (KnitMeter – a neat gadget to help you keep track of your knitting/spinning mileage), wants to stop filling up all of those recently freed-up needles!

A last note:

To give a great, no-cost gift to your favorite podcasters (not just us, of course!), please consider leaving an iTunes review or star rating to help them pop up in knitting podcast searches.  It helps those of us who podcast know that we are putting quality entertainment for you, and it makes us feel really special!  Thank you in advance!!

Thank you guys so much for joining us, and we look forward to putting our next episode up around New Years!  We hope you have a wonderful holiday!!

Brittany & Dana

    Hi! I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m here, listening. I really enjoy your podcast, which is saying something, cause a lot of knitting podcasts aren’t able to hold my interest. I like your segments a lot and the fact that you’re 2 friends talking to each other. Keep up the great work!

    Sabrina 🙂
