In which we catch up on life's joys and sorrows, and get cheered up by Dr. Yarn and our grandsons.  And in which we talk about plowing back and forth, the perfect yarn for when you're Friesian, how sweet Jan is, and how incapable we both are at correct counts during cast ons.

In which we catch up after several months.  Jan became a grandma, Ellen went to Scotland, and we both had other adventures.  Thanks for your patience while we were gone and while Jan was trying to get the episode edited...just under the wire to have an episode out in June!

In which Ellen spends almost 15 minutes talking about how her knitting bit her.  It really is impressive.  Just saying.


Whew!  Many tasks kept me from editing this very quickly, but here it is...
 
In which we discuss Groundhog Day (are you surprised?), Ellen's commitment to acquire more skeins than she knits...err, rather knit more skeins than she acquires, Jan's experience at the Women's March on DC, Ellen's experiences at Ding Dong Darling National Wildlife Refuge (they involve birds -- and key lime pie), an epic knitting bite, and craftivism.  And we have a few words from Dr. Yarn!!

In which we chat about our holidays -- and Jan goes on and on about her holiday trip to Japan -- and in which we highlight a few other entrepreneurs in which you might be interested, hear from the founder of June cashmere, put out a few knitting and life objectives for the new year, and reconnect after our winter hiatus.  (Note, the outtakes refer to a bit of food poisoning Jan and family experienced in Japan -- not caused by the Kobe beef, but coincidental to that meal...we do not want to cause anyone to miss out on trying Kobe beef because of these comments!)
