Check out the new "The Knit Girllls" podcast episode: 104 Nobody likes the Gusset!
Friday Studios might be mentioned... Yay!!! I am the European local stripy person! It is around the 50 min mark if you do not want to watch the whole thing, which I can not imagine why you would not. I love there podcast, even when they do not mention me. ;)
And they are giving away a skein of my stripy sock yarn, go over there and have a look and join the competition. :)
