    >Great stash enhancement this week. Your finished bags are adorable, I know which one I want to win. Fingers crossed. I think you did a wonderful job on your hubby's socks. Men are so hard to knit for sometimes, they want everything so simple and unadorned which usually translates into boring for the knitter.

    >The bags are all amazing! I wish I could sew better, but the finality of cutting fabric makes me nervous. Super jealous about Estes- my dad lives out there, but a visit isn't in the budget this year.

    >oh the paisley fabric is so pretty! I joke that I have reverse SAD, I get so unhappy in the Summer, the sun is my mortal enemy. Of course I have good old fashion depression anyway so, I feel ya. *hugs*

    >I love that you make up your own name for the yarn colors! I always copy and paste the pattern into Word and just print off the words so I don't waste ink on a picture. Sometimes I print the picture too. I guess it depends on how low our printer ink is. lolMarch 11th?! WOO that's my b-day! 😀 Another great podcast!Hugs!
