Still can’t stop laughing two days later…

Warning… not for the faint of ears… as someone I know put it.

Chance to win some pretty sweet yarn

Yarn Contest

Here are the photos of the yarns up for grabs in Episode 8’s podcasts. Hey, y’all. There’s only one contestant vying for the Yarnia and none for the Shetland handspun. Here’s your chance. Post your answers or even best guesses. It doesn’t matter if you’re wrong. If there aren’t enough participants I’ll put everyone who comments into the pool.

To enter read the details in Episode 8’s post and follow the directions. Good luck 🙂

Contest 1 – Where was I knitting?

Prize:
2 skeins approx. 50 grams each of homespun shetland wool.

Contest 2 – What’s that sound at the end of the podcast?
Prize: 1 350 yard skein Yarnia Estrel ( 34% Bamboo; 29% Merino; 27% Wool). Sweet… super sweet!

We’re now on Podcast Alley

I’m listing Cloudy with a Chance of Fiber (the knitting podcast I co-host with RachelP) on Podcast Alley.

My Podcast Alley feed!

And sorry for being delinquent with my blogging but since I last posted here we’ve released Episodes 6: Lace Interval & Episodes 7: Done with Cloudy Weather.

At least I can safely say that the heat and drier days are here for a limited period of time. I consider myself a consummate Pacific Northwester but even I could no longer deal with the long string of damp dreary days. I was starting to become the water ghost of Harrowby Hall.

I finally got around to talking about Gansey’s in Episode 7. A good thing too because maybe if I get around to starting my TV John McIver Aran Sweater I can finally work on version to of Lochinver this time around in some Reynolds Whiskey I hoarded away.
