  1. Ohhhhh! Great mail week indeed! And ty for posting links to the yarn, you evil woman!

  2. Thanks for another great episode, Carin! I'm a German native speaker and my guess for the name of the last Wollmeise skein you showed is "Libelle", it means "dragonfly". ?
    I am very impressed by the gift you are knitting for your mum - and also really glad that I decided not to knit any presents this year...
    Many greetings from Austria!

  3. Hi Carin! I love this videocast, I was so sad when you stopped guest hosting Lime & Violet, and I look forward to your videocast every week. I was just wondering what other knitting (or non-knitting) pod-/videocasts you listen to, because I'm having trouble finding others that I truly enjoy. Thanks, and keep up the great work!!
