Amy and Jaala have created a time machine and brought this podcast to you from the far shores of April. In this podcast Amy catches yarn falling from the sky and shares it with other knitters, Jaala shows her weakness for all things striped and polka-dotted. (Note; the concept of porn as a driving force for internet commerce is joked about in a non-explicit way in the last 10 minutes of this show).

Note from the last podcast: Susie Myers/Susie M developed the Contiguous Shoulder Method of putting together a sweater. I'm not exactly sure which pattern the knitter at Camp was working on, but someone has kindly put together a list of the patterns using this method if you want to explore...
