On this weeks show I get to talk with Leslie Ann the new author of Cast On, Bind Off. Leslie Ann is a teacher who has just published her first book, and it’s a lot of book on a topic that comes into play with every knitting project.
If you are interested in hearing more about this book feel free to check out the other great posts along the yarn

7/30 The Knit Girllls
Patience, by lovely friend who is on team chuppah… joins me in a little literary episode(live from her yarn den). We review Cast On, Bet’s Off and Casts Off by the Yarn Harlot. The rest of the show goes real political. We ponder what the election holds for us Knitters and what we, as knitters, should expect from our candidates (free the hemp and don’t let foreign yarns get too expensive). Check out this entry by the Subway Knitter also thinking about the upcoming election and the link to the Slate article. Let me know what you think about the upcoming knitting election.
Does anyone know if there is a knitting reflief group for Peru… How can I help?
This week’s drawing is about knitting literature. Please comment about how you think knitting could be incorporated into a book. Can it be a part of good literature, do you have a favorite?

I really screwed up this time… By setting off the alarm at Circles I have created a fine against them. I don’t know how much it is exactly, but I believe that it will be $200 or more.So I am going to try and do a little fundraising. I am sorry to have to ask, but I already spend enough on time and money getting the podcast together. So if you have a dollar to ten dollars to donate, it would really help. Anything I make that is over the fine I will split between production costs and rent to the store for providing such a wonerful space.
Please donate here. I would really like to keep my recording space..:)
