    The hanging semi… Mauston, Wisconsin, I believe. My parent’s used to live in Mauston. I’ve never been to Carr Valley Cheese, but I will have to stop the next time I pass the semi!

    Oh, but I’m so grateful for Craftlit! Heather, In the midst of moves and teaching jobs, new books, and new businesses, even a cross-country drive, you haven’t even slowed down your postings. That’s a big deal, in my book — and I’m so thankful!

    In the past few years (my own crazy times), I’ve had little time for knitting, spinning and podcasts — but I never miss an episode of Craftlit. I love the book talk, I love the informal chatting, the creative stuff, and I love the books. I heart Craftlit. Call me an all-round fan-girl. So thank you.

    Congrats on the move, Heather!

    I have a friend who lives very near Uniquities and goes to a spinning group that I think meets there. It’s her favorite store.
    The word so far has been they are predicting a slightly less hot, although very humid, summer, so maybe that will make this easier for you. I just BET your Sally Hansen instant dry nail polish will NOT dry as fast here…
    I have to put Ehren’s book on my wish list, I love his podcast.

    Glad you arrived safely at your new home. You are in a great place to find “free” entertainment.

    Not sure what criticism you received. I am sure it may be hard to review a magazine if you do not have it. But there are a lot of knitting podcasts that review knitting stuff. I have totally enjoyed Zen Tangle and would never have found it without you. I never felt I could draw, and now I am doodling and enjoying it and realizing I am not so right brained that I cannot ”learn” more creativity. And there are plenty of free resources for it (and other things) on the Internet. Do not look at your reduced spending as a disadvantage. It is an opportunity to find new things that give you joy that are free and available to all of your listeners.

    I have listened to you from the beginning. I started just this year and listened to a bunch back to back. I am enjoying this podcast so much, that it would warm my high school lit teacher’s heart. Greedily I would love you to dedicate hours to the podcast, because I want more. But realistically, I am so grateful for all that you do and generously put out on the Internet. I would hate it if negative comments take any of the joy out of this for you. Just know you add joy to my life and I am very appreciative.

    Any old brand of deodorant for mosquito bites?

    I live very close to Uniquities, its a great shop! That’s where I usually go, but I also head to Nature’s Yarns on occasion.
    I’m still catching up on the podcast (I usually listen in batches), so I haven’t heard how you are settling in, but it would be great to meet you sometime!

  6. Welcome to the East Coast! You are very near my neck of the woods. Wooo hooo. I can tell you from personal experience, the transition from West Coast to East is easy in the Fall, and Spring… and the first snow… but summer sucks. I miss the dry heat of the west.
    I found a little backing soda mixed with water, into a paste, does wonders for bug bites.
    Thanks for the book shout out!
    Glad you are catching up on sleep… “Sleep, that knits up the ravell’d sleave of care…”

    I have never found you to be “out of the loop” although perhaps I am a little loopy…
    Someone/thing/place to check out, also known as Juniper Moon Farm on Ravelry I’m sure since I posted this, you already know Susie BUT you are now super close to her and since you are both awesome? Well you should go visit!
