  1. Congratulations on completing your beautiful Ishbel! It was wonderful fun to see your newest FO and your poor holey clogs in the same episode. My cashmere mitts I love to death are starting to look rather Dickensian with fraying at the knuckles. Proof of solid use, eh? Happy knitting on whatever strikes your fancy moment to moment.

  2. Karen, thanks so much for your video podcasts! I've enjoyed each one. It's so nice to see what an Ishbel looks like as it drapes around the human neck and shoulders. The color is very pretty on you. (from susan93940 on Ravelry)

  3. I was able to purchase some Sea Silk in the Amethyst colorway for an Ishbel, just because yours is so beautiful! If by chance we ever meet up, you'll recognize the shawl, I'm sure!

  4. I can't wait to see the Mazes sweater at the Spring Fling!

  5. Love your show! I assume the theme is knitting in the round. Very informative and great information! THANKS Karen
