  1. I love the idea of the Little Women shawls and I look forward to seeing the other three from the collection. I didn't even know those type of bodkins exist, I shall have to look out for some as they're handy to have. Good luck with the 'conference', I hope it goes well and that you get things sorted out.

  2. I so enjoyed this Amy. I am going through a very busy and quite stressful period right now so when I saw you had a podcast up I made myself a pot of special Eatl Grey tea, cut a piece of rhubarb cake and sat down to watch. Rico creative cotton in the Aran weight is great to work with isn't it. I've made two string bags and two stool covers using this yarn in neutrals such as cream and grey and jazzing up my designs with accents of lime green and raspberry pink. I used up every last bit by making several mug rests too. I loved your story about visiting Louisa May Alcott's home. Amy is a very redemptive character. I didn't much like her to begin with but she grew on me. My daughter's middle name is Amy, my husband's choice. At the time I thought I might have preferred Mary but i've grown very fond of it as a name especially since watching my daughter write her name in full when she was a little girl. Have a good week. I must say your weekend of relaxing in the garden sounded lovely.

  3. I love Mandala's I want to see your patterns

  4. Hi Amy! I really love the red shawl. It is so nice of you to show peeps how to make the yarn pegs. Smart! Keep it up, friend!

  5. You're doing great with videos! I have more to make yet too.... have my parents visiting now :-)


  6. It's still such fun seeing you "live"! I love your plan to make the Little Women shawls, and the first is so pretty! It looks great draped around you for the podcast, and really shows how nice a summer shawl can be. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of them completed now. Great work Amy!

  7. Hello Amy,

    Lovely to see you talking and showing your makes! Really enjoyed watching it. It's nice to see you progressing and doing your own patterns! The Beth Shawl looks lovely!

    Keep up the good work!
    Take care,
    Ingrid xx

  8. Wonderful podcast Amy, you did a fabulous job and taught me a few new things with your fun gadgets.

  9. I like your idea of a shawl for each of the Little Women, very imaginative X
