Great new knitalong starts today over at Fringe Association. We are IN on this thing.

It’s Like Bronx Beat, sort of

Dear everyone who still reads our blog, and I hope that includes you, Kay,
Quick note that we’re going to be on Martha Stewart Radio Monday morning, 8 am eastern time, on XM Sirius satellite radio channel 112. We’ll be talking with Betsy and Kim, the hosts of “Morning Living.” I think they have call ins, so please say hi if you’re feeling chatty.
Love,
Ann

  1. … mon dieu … les filles … vous êtes partout!!! … how charming to be on “morning living” bright and shiny on a monday … ya’ll can just be sitting there in yer jammies!!!

  2. I’m trying to get 112 hooked up by tomorrow. Hope it makes it. I have XM but somehow, someone (not naming names) blocked it on channel select. Next sort of dumb question……….is there some reason why I wouldn’t keep reading the blog? I must have missed it. BTW – I am finishing my top-down sweater and the book is great.

  4. Oh for heaven’s sake, if people stopped talking to people or reading blogs they disagreed with we’d all be hermits living in caves! What is it with people these days? A little disagreement and they’re all ready to fling you to the curb. You’re not getting rid of me as a reader that easy, I’m telling you.

  5. no chance of losing me! And if I am awake enough and remember, I’ll tune in! Can’t wait! (I never even knew there was a Martha Stewart Channel!)

  6. We love you MDK,
    Oh yes we dooooooooo.
    We love you MDK,
    and we’ll be troooooo.
    When you’re not blo-o-o-gging,
    We’re on ravelry….



    (Whoops, sorry. Got a little sidetracked there.)
    Oh, Ann and Kay, We Love yooooooo!!!

  7. I didn’t know there was Martha Stewart Radio. I also had to ask my husband what the new fangled satellite thing was…apparently we don’t have that either.
    So I don’t think I can tune in…are the broadcasts archived on the Martha Stewart’s web site?
    Good luck and have fun. Kay, don’t forget the topic is knitting, not rugs.

  8. Y’all should sing your song on there! That’d be so awesome!

  9. Never mind radio. Has Martha seen your video? Cause honeys she would have to have you on her telly show. Has to. It remains to be seen if you two want to be remembered for big hair or not :-}
    I love reading your blog.
    One of the great things about the internet is I get to read newspapers from all around the world. I was very restful for the brain to realize there are places on this world, where lipstick, pig, yes we can and maverick were only words.

  10. That would be kind of funny if Kay said, that knitting thing is behind me now, but I would love to talk about rug hooking!

  11. Gosh, it’s enough to make me sign up for Sirius — seriously.

  12. Dear Ann and Kay,
    Since you are going to be with Martha herself, and I am unable to call in due to my current location, I’m wondering if you could ask her a question for me. Is there a gene inherent in all crafty-type people that causes them to continually pick up new crafts throughout their life? Exhibit Kay’s previous post and newfound love for rug hooking. Shamelessly tossing knitting aside. I know. I’ve done it with cross stitch, pottery, watercolours, polymer clay, and and and.
    Very curious if it’s nature or nuture. My Mom hates crafts.
    Thanks ladies,
    Melissa

  13. I don’t have Sirius satellite radio, but I wanted to assure you that not everyone who disagrees with you politically has left the fold. I love you guys!! Peace, love, and rock ‘n roll!!

  14. Your hooking is fabulous. You will love all the primitive patterns out there. I started a year ago myself. If you buy a frame there are a lot of options depending on how portable you want your rug to be. As a friend of mine said you only need a frame and a strip cutter, both which can be costly, but that’s all you need plus the hook. Hoarding rug hooking wool is right up there with yarn stashing and it takes up as much space! Dyeing your own wool is overrated IMO.

  16. OF COURSE we’re still reading! You know you can hook your spun wool stash as well, for a different effect…. Go forth and hook! (ahem)

  17. Chances are I’d still read this blog even if you had voted for the other team. But, as it is, your brillance was confirmed to me by your choice. I donot have satellite radio. I was at Stitches East this past weekend. I sure wish you had been there.

  18. Can’t get rid of me that easily! Still reading. Of course, I work in an academic setting, where open discourse and discussion rule the day, so maybe I’m weird. Heck, some of my best friends are crocheters, and I’ve even been known to mingle with spinners who don’t knit. Heavens!
    Couldn’t do without the Mason Dixon blog. Who would feed my addiction?
    Don’t get satellite radio, but hope you had fun.

  19. still adoring both of you & the blog of course…
    but Bronski Beat? huh? ;-) xoxo k

  20. Ugh oh. You sold your souls to the FELON. Not a fan. Not a fan. Im up for forgiving you two though.

  21. Woo-hoo!! De-lurking here to say I’m still reading!!

  22. I’m with newamy. I don’t have the XM Satellite Radio, so it would be great if the spot was archived on the Martha Stewart site. Especially, because I’m usually on the tail end of my commute at 8 a.m. (and so deep underground that I don’t get cell signal anyway).

  23. No sattelite radio for me either (no DVD player either), but congrats. That must be a tough gig to get. I’m sure she’d want you on tv too. Hope it was great.

  24. Oh Ann…I’m sorry I smothered you with president trivia when you just needed to hear that you can have your opinion (which you stated eloquently) and we will not stop reading! I’m with you babe!

  25. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…… (car crashing)
    Oh. Well, I was teaching by then anyway. Are you kidding about the reading? After I bought yarn for three projects at Stitches E?

  26. It looks like you do have fewer readers – 119 commented on the Obama posting, you are down to 25 (now 26) on this posting. At least we are loyal, although some of us don’t get satellite radio, and couldn’t listen. As a McCain voter, I try not to let knitting and politics collide, but what did you think of that dress Michelle was wearing? I wanted Obama to stop talking so she could do some serious fashion walking and let us get a better look. Perhaps your next design contest could be “Fashions for First Ladies and Almost Vice-Presidents”. Inaugural designs?

  27. Of course I still read you and I have you linked on my blog. FYI, today three people came into my shoppe and asked how happy I was (referring to the election). They knew how worried I was that the election would go to the red side. We had had discussions about Sarah dear as I knew of her when I lived in Wasilla, AK.

  28. I had a wicked cold all last week, so I kept up as best I could, was sorely tempted to comment several times but let it go, partly because my poor ol’ brain was not computin’, as they say. Now that the viral fog has cleared, I have a few thoughts.
    We have a new president about to take on massive challenges, not least of which is reuniting this unhappily divided country. The prevailing atmosphere of highly partisan politics and unfounded culture wars has been a tool used to split us apart, a savvy move that worked all too well for those in power. Now we can hardly figure out how to have peace and unity on a knitting blog, fer god’s sake!
    Ann and Kay, your politics are welcome here anytime you see fit– this is your blog, it’s a thing of beauty, and we share your joy of creating and playing with fiber in all it’s glory. To not mention your responses to the monumentous events of late for fear they would ignite and burn down the free-speechiness of your blog would have been just ridiculous.
    Hope we can all hang together– what is knitting, people, if not a metaphor for wholeness? OK, I guess it could be about other stuff…

  29. quinn: best blog “comment” of the year!
    Ann and Kay: Best knitting blog EVER!!
    LoveDiane

  30. All of this is so silly. People need to pull the pickles out! Hell, I’d read your blog, buy your books, sell your books and knit your patterns even if you guys were uber-evangelical Christian Republicans (no offense to uber-evangelical Christian Republicans!). You both ROCK! Keep your chins up and keep on writing!

  31. I still read! Don’t give up the ship (by ship i mean blog)
