Facebook

Yes, I still need to get Episode 18 show notes and the Magic Loop Tutorial posted, but I've been working on a Facebook page for the podcast instead.  You can find it by searching for Commuter Knitter, or going directly to www.facebook.com/CommuterKnitter.  Some folks are not on Twitter, so I wanted to be sure that there was another way to get in touch.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
