What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:

Still in Progress:

Phase Four of the Studio: Teal Wall. One coat has been applied. it's Love-er-lee!

My extremely well-fitted (so far) Noro Kuryon vest. I am getting down to the bottom edge of the body at last!

The endless Petal Shawlette.

Dizzy Blondes:

Does making goals for the Tour de Fleece count?

Strategy: Try to put the kindest interpretation that you can on the things people say to you.

Something I Really Like:
Has been purloined by The Knitmore Girls. Bring it back!

Put  Lid On It:
Basic gear required for water-bath canning of acidic foods.
the Bibles:
Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving
Ball Blue Book Guide
A water bath canner (so you can see what one looks like)



OMG!!! We're becoming an alpaca ranch!!!OR: How hanging out with KnitterCritter has changed my life.

I listened to your podcast for the first time & really enjoyed it, thanks!

I knit & also have done water bath canning & loved hearing about it. Once in a while I'll find coupons for Ball items in the Sunday paper, you can keep an eye out for those. Also, you can buy Ball lids - for when you open the jars, you can use these white lids to replace the rings & tops.

I didn't know what to expect and laughed when I heard you talking about Dale Carnegie classes -- I took those 20+ years ago & those are good lessons to remember!

Thanks again! I enjoyed the listen.
