Hello Susan,

I really enjoy watching your videos. You Inspire me to want to really learn to make socks. I have a vacation coming up and some knitting projects that I will be finishing and beginning. One of the projects that I will be starting as a beginner is making socks. I have battled with learning how to make socks. I purchased your crafsty video with hopes that on my vacation I can start and possible actually finish a sock. Thank you for sharing you projects.

What a lovely tote bag!

Thanks for another great episode - I always find your podcast to be very inspiring, and the idea of knitting Christmas socks in the summer makes perfect sense. In the fall and winter, you want to knit socks you can wear right away, and Christmas time knitting is too hectic, so knitting them in the summer is a fantastic idea!

I love the Louleigh birds tote bag. My husband is a serious bird watcher, so I am always drawn to fabric with birds because it makes me think of him. It looks like a wonderful size for a sweater, and having the interior pockets is a nice touch.

Hi Susan

Your blog inspired me to start knitting socks late last year after 25 years of knitting everything but socks. I actually learned to knit after taking lessons at the yarn store that used to be on State St while attending UW. Now I am obsessed with knitting socks and only socks! Your instructions took the intimidation factor away for me. I would really love the bag to carry my current project with me on the weekends when I travel with daughter to Irish dance competitions.

This is my first time watching your podcast and I will definitely go back and watch the previous videos. Well made project bags do make knitting projects more enjoyable.

What a darling tote. Really like the idea of having the zipper section separate so it can be folded down. Thank you for your wonderful podcasts. You are so inspiring.
