In this episode, we talk about our adventures in knitting (mostly the same as last week, with one finished object) as well as spinning and dyeing. There’s news from the first couple days of San Diego Comic-Con (not firsthand, sadly), some out of this world news (sorry, couldn’t resist) with what may be Neil Gaiman’s moon (*snerk*) as well as more geeky reading. Finally, we share another favourite indie dyer as well as a fanartist that had Karen melting into a puddle of goo. Not that that’s terribly hard.
