  1. This is the first episode I've seen, and I enjoyed it! I'll be going back to watch the previous ones. You did great on Marley's show. If not for that interview, I wouldn't have known about you. The Haley's Hug Cowl looks lovely. Thanks for sharing the story behind the name. The mini skeins are so cute and the colors your daughter combined are very cool. Thanks again for sharing with us.

  2. Hi, Christine! Thank you so much for the kind words about my blog and origin story. Our daughter truly is our miracle, and I'm so happy that she's doing well after having an early arrival. It's fun to hear about your projects. I'm working on a mitered-square sock yarn blanket, too, and love picking up mini-skeins.

  3. Hi Christine, I am all set to begin your MKAL and. can't wait (my first one)! I am about to start a sock blanket too, so the mini skeins would be a great boost to get started. Love your podcast so far :)

  4. Hi Christine, I have been looking for a sock yarn blanket, which pattern would you suggest for a intermitter knit. I am currently doing working on clue # 1 of your MKAL and enjoying it very much.
