Hi~
Thx again for a wonderful podcast.
In my home town we have a polar bear swim that occurs on New Years Day in the iced over river. I have never had the courage to attempt it.

To help you on your search and be an enabler, I have a suggestion for your search of Hello Kitty goodies.
www.etsy.com
Just type in Hello Kitty into the search and there are at least 14 pages of kitty goodness. There are bags, pendants, earrings, magnets and a bunch of other things. And best of all they are all handmade!

Great podcast!! My MP3 has gone missing so I listened on the computer for a change. I found this nice little hello kitty to knit. http://web.archive.org/web/20030414021242/www.generatordesign.com/kitty.htmlI thought she was adorable. I love pink so I can understand your love for hello kitty.
I love theidea of a flight knitting kit. :) knit on!!

I'm so sorry to tell you this, but my favorite part of the podcast is your son saying that's the end. ;)He's sooooo cute.

I have recently discovered your podcast, and along with Lime & Violet, it is going to be a regular on my new PINK Ipod Nano. (Pink? Do I have to take a shot now?) You asked about the Fixation yarn--I've used the Elann Esprit for several pairs of socks and my favorite pattern is Rob's Broadripple from Knitty. They work up really quickly and look great in either a variegated or solid.
Keep up the great work!
Bonne

Wow, nice toaster! One yarn I love is handpaintedyarn.com, but I'm trying not to buy too much yarn!

I just listened to your podcast today on my way to work and wanted to let you know about the Hello Kitty Knitalong:

I tried to participate in this, but had some trouble with the chart / colors (that's just me though!) I'm sure you could use the pattern to create something for you!
