My first "real" lace project, Icarus, is blocking on my guest bed. Boy that sucker is big and pretty. I'll hopefully take pictures tomorrow or Sunday.

On the next show, I plan to talk about a different solution to the First Scarf Syndrome, a Romantic book, and keeping track of your EZ shoulder shaping.

Hi Laura,

I've been listening to your podcast for quite a while now and I wanted to drop you a little note to let you know that I'm really enjoying it. I have a really new podcast (only on episode 2) about knitting and watching movies. One of the movies I talked about this week was Pi, and that made me think about math, which of course made me think about your podcast, so I had to mention it while I was rambling on. If you want to check it out, I'd be honored to hear what you think. (Of course, I will understand if you don't want to or are two busy!) Oh, and congratulations on the completion of Icarus!!

You can find the podcast at

Hi Laura: Big Hugs for all you are going through in your personal life. I appreciate all the podcasting you can muster at this time. I would like to know about shoulder shaping. I fear committing to a sweater project [again] until I can figure this out. Do you have the "Magic Formula"?
Another topic of interest might be some first-hand experience with fiber types and shrink ratio after washing them. I know felting is popular right now, but what about ordinary projects, like basic cotton-, rayon-, and nylon-wool blends?
Thanks so much! Hang in there! Christine - Las Vegas.
