    In the Yarn Harlot’s blog post there is a picture of yarn on cones. Lovely yarn. Can you tell us what it is (maybe a picture from the front showing the labels)?

    Hi Kathy and Steve,

    following up on one of your comments in the last episode: there are listeners out there! I’m one of them and I’m always thrilled. Not only do both of you have great “radio voices”, also the topics chosen have always piqued my interest. A pity we don’t get podcasts (and yarn stores) like yours in Germany. At least I haven’t found one to date.

    In this episode Kathy mentioned conductive thread to use for mittens and gloves to make them mobile device capable. To make that work properly, please tell your customers, that the thread has to be worked into the fabric in such a manner that the tread touches the finger on the inside and lies on top of the regular thread on the outside. That’s because the thread is only conducting the “electricity” from the wearer’s fingers to the screen and nothing else. From my experince, this is better achieved by sewing the thread into the glove tips as if you are darning the tip than by knitting it into the tip upon construction.
    Happy crafting and keep up this great podcast!
    Greetings from Germany, Laura
