I found your podcast after Allie talking about you, plus someone on my Ravelry group recommended your podcast too. I think that though you were nervous in your first episode it certainly didn't show and you come across very naturally. It must be so hard not being able to get hold of all the nice yarn you see in podcasts. It's bad enough for me drooling over the US yarns and at least I know I COULD get it if I was prepared to pay the custom charges. I have visions of family members travelling over the visit with extra suitcases filled with yarn.
I'm trying to cut back on yarn purchases, so when a few come in a batch, I try and space them out over several podcasts. I've still got stuff from Black Friday that I've yet to talk about.
By the way Megan of the Stockinette Zombie podcast uses a lot of superwash yarns and she says that it will always stretch. What she does is wash it in the machine and lay it out flat to dry until it's almost dry (barely damp) and put it in the tumble dryer for a few minutes and that will shrink it back up again. Now I haven't tried it myself, so don't trust my word, but it might be worth checking around for that solution, or even just asking Megan.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and that I enjoyed the podcast. I've subscribed and if you ever set up a group on Rav, invite me!
