    I’ve been listening since last year’s MDSW and recently commented, on Ravelry, for the first time about catching up. Well, now I am here, and so surprised that you are moving to my town! I’m sorry you have to move again but Alexandria is a great town with access to so much, from the Textile Museum and all of DC’s fabulous museums to Shenandoah National Park – I’m sure you’ve heard it all already. Funny enough, I also used to live in the Hudson Valley when I was a kid so I loved the occasional glimpses of it from your early episodes. Just wanted to wish you the best in your upcoming move and also send my thanks for your dedication to putting out such a wonderful podcast!

    Heather! You are going to be at Stitches West! Yay! I will be going with some of the members of our Friday night knitting group. WE have so much fun. And now I can look forward to meeting you and getting your book too. We travel up by car from So Cal and stay for a couple of nights. We love it! All the color, all the yarn All the books! We gather around the tables on the side and sit and talk, knit crochet and then go off and forage thru the market.
    Also I think I am hearing from the universe that tell me to knit a knocker. Someone from the ravelry so cal group just posted about that project.
    Try not to get overwhelmed with moving- Just remember that old joke- How do you eat an elephant?
    One bite at a time
    Take care,

    yes, it appears there is an issue with the download link for specific episodes on their post pages when accessing craftlit.com. i was informed of the problem this morning and i’m working on determining why the link is missing for heather asap. if you need a link to download from, please try this link in the meantime–http://craftlit.libsyn.com/ (as has been suggested above — thanks everyone!).

    thank you for being patient!

    From Heather in KY:
    Thought this might be interesting for those participating in the make a boob drive. The first thing that came to mind when you mentioned it in the podcast was the pattern I saw on Knitty several years ago when I was first learning to knit. It just struck me as interesting (plus, I didn’t understand how to knit in the round at that point — just crochet)

    also, I found this one when trying to find the Knitty pattern again.

    Hope it’s helpful for those who are looking for a good pattern that’s NOT quilted, but might still work for the project.

    Thank you, Heather!

    Did you get a reader for the Fitzgerald story yet?

    I would like us to do a Katherine Mansfield short story also sometime…

    And wow, you’re coming out here! You will probably live way south if the job is in Alexandria but hey it’s closer than Tucson is!

    Shoot, I had meant to include the link. That was my whole point in writing this.

    I couldn’t find anything to download from this site. If it’s here would someone please tell me how to find it? I did end up finding it by going to libsyn. couldn’t find that link either, so I went to Knitmisadventures libsyn site and typed ‘craftlit’ instead of the name there. To my surprise that worked and I did download the new episode. Haven’t listened yet.

    I don’t know if others are having as much trouble as I am finding these. I don’t use I-tunes.

    Hi Heather.

    Can only imagine how unsettling the events of Saturday must be for you. Having once lived in Arizona, the Safeway setting is so familiar. Will look forward chapter one when you feel ready….margaret

  9. Gosh, Heather. Again? You were right there when 9/11 happened and now you are right in the midst of another tragedy. What a horrible thing this was. Do what you have to to take care of your needs and those of your family. This time you have two young sons who must be upset and confused. We’ll look forward to the start of the book, when things settle down again.
