'' a show about nothing ''? full of interest to me.
5 stars if I could rate it.
I have also got so involved in a pattern that I miss shaping rows, Wendy; and in misplacing caps, Sheila. Makes me feel a little better that I am in your company.
Is your VKN via Ravelry, or Google+?.

take care,

Thank you Enid. I feel better to know I am not alone. VKN is through google plus. I will try to put the link in the show notes.

Love Cadbury chocolate. It is the best. When we were living in England, many years ago, i fell in love with Cadbury. the stores there had rows and rows of different candy bars. Flake is wonderful. It's really hard to share.

Love the monsters, have the pattern, need to make it for my daughter who is moving to Germany to be an au pair. Thought the children might like them.

Love your show!
