    I got back into knitting when I moved to Anchorage 10 years ago. I have since moved, but AK was a great place to knit!

    Happy 20th Anniversary!! What an amazing, beautiful place to vacation! What will you make with the Quiviut (did I spell that correctly)?

    Happy Anniversary Eric and Cat!

    I love this podcast. It was so nice to see just how far knitting has come in the US. I hope you make something great out of your new yarn. Whenever I travel I go to knitting stores also. This drives my boyfriend crazy. He doesn’t understand why yarn and knitting excites me. He says whenever I go off knitting, he feels like a knitting widower! Can Eric offer John some advice on what it’s like to be partner of a knitting diva? Recently my latest knitting adventure is loom knitting. I found out about through a book that my sister gave me. Do you do any loom knitting, Cat? Thanks again for the podcasts.

    soooo envious of the quiviut! Haven’t ever got the chance to touch some but have heard everything good:o) Wish so much you and your husband could do a weekly show. Love your program so much! Happy Anniversary (belated). I will celebrate 31 yrs. next month. Anyhow good show and thank you!

    I love your guys’ show. I am a new knitter about 3 months old. It is so fun and relaxing and watching your episodes over and over really are neat. There is something magical in how you both interact. I love the bloopers. I am a counselor and my wife is the one who takes the videos of me for my website. Congratulations on you 20th. You guys look so young to be married so long.

    Great show — I’d like to see some of that Qivuit, and am also interested to see what you will knit with it. I like the neckwarmer I saw on the website of one of the vendors who sell qivuit.
    I’m assuming with the interesting spelling, it must be an Eskimo Indian word.

    Great show

    I have in-laws in Alaska. You just made me want to go visit! (Maybe I can hint at some qiviut for christmas?!) Can’t wait to see your next episode!
