    My vote is for the red yarn for your sweater. As the weather gets cold and dreary, you will have that beautiful cheery color to look at and enjoy. Great podcast!

    Enjoyed your comments on Pittsburgh. I visited there once for a conference that was held on the waterfront and I was so impressed to see real working rivers. Not just recreational, but real working rivers. Very interesting.

    • fibernymph says:

      That’s so interesting. I never thought about them as “working” rivers, but I guess they are! It’s really cool to take one of the lock & dam tours that the Gateway Clipper boats do…you can be outside on the boat as it is in the lock and the water level changes to go from one level of the river to another. :)

  3. Kitty says:

    I also vote for the red. So I am trying to find the cardigan you are talking about, no show notes. Help. Love your podcast.

  4. Enid Mary Shaw says:

    Good to see you so chipper after beginning of week.
    Great episode!!!!
    I second the red yarn.
    hope Keith is feeling better?

    • fibernymph says:

      It varies day by day. Some days he’s good, others not so much. He hasn’t been sleeping well again and that’s making things worse. Of course, when he doesn’t sleep well, neither do I. Sigh.

      (Oh, and it’s Kevin, not Keith…but close! Both “K” names! ;))

  5. Mary Beth says:

    I’m voting red also! Will work for holiday sweater if it’s done in time! My DH and I come to Pittsburgh about 4 times a year because we love it so much, and when we come through the tunnel it gives me goose bumps every single time!!! Great show!!!

    • fibernymph says:

      I know, right?? We came through yesterday on our way back from an event we were at in the South Hills…gorgeous day, blue sky! So pretty!

      If you’re ever in the ‘burgh and want to hang out or go yarn shopping or something, let me know! :)

  6. hello,
    Red.. but then red is always my go too yarn :_)
    I was wondering if you would demo spinning with your wheel sometime ?
    I drop spin.. but would love to get a wheel, so would love to see you using yours:-)

    have a great week.
    (who has 14 Kindergarteners every thursday for Kicks at church , it’s going to be a busy day here :0)
