  1. Always love the podcast. Feel like I’m talking with a friend(which you are). It makes my day when there is a new one to watch

  2. Becky, I saw these M&Ms last week
    and DID NOT buy any – so will have to look for them this week and put some in my basket.
    Am impressed that you knit a sweater. I’ve have knit one in several decades. But love. knitting sox. This summer I’ve discovered shawls. I’m knitting them like crazy

    Enjoyed your vid of Family Reunion

  3. I was wondering if you had made it to the MN State Fair? I like to watch your podcast, I have sort of been in your shoes. I was stationed in England for a while (both kids born there) and got to go to Germany a couple of times for training.

  4. HI my name is Victoria, and i’m also addicted to yarn.so i feel your pain.great podcast and love the chapea,i will make one soon.

  5. Coconut M&M’s??? I haven’t ever seen them in a German store. I love coconut, and I want those M&M’s to be available for the non-base Germany, too. I have to keep my eyes open, though, in case they *are* available.

  6. Love meeting your family at the family reunion it was a great show. Love the podcast and those stitch markers are to die for and I love beer what a great gift to me. Thanks for the great show I really enjoy all the hard work you do.
