Listen here:

This week's episode has been sponsored by:

Introducing Abstract Fiber Alto: 100% SuperWash Blue Faced Leicester in a 3-ply DK weight yarn. Shiny, very soft, just the right amount of twist. You should see how this yarn takes color! There is something magical about the way the colors smudge together and create new shades in between. Add the sheen, and it’s almost too pretty to sell. Perfect for sweaters, scarves, wrist warmers, just about anything. 4.5 ounces of Alto is nearly 400 yards and only $20. We think you’ll love Alto as much as we do. Find Alto online at

  1. I was driving from Princeton, NJ to home in the Washington, DC area while listening to this episode. It was awesome! It will be "up there" as one of my favorite podcast listens ever!
