  1. The baby socks are the cutest! And your cork coasters are so clever. I love the way they look.

    Regarding podcast length: I do like the shorter length. Kind of like what you said sometimes there's time to watch an hour long show, sometimes not. So the shorter shows are great for those few minutes between tasks. But I also love book reviews so that would be fun to see sometimes.

    Have a merry Christmas!

  2. Hi Emily,
    you have been productive this week!
    The yarn is gorgeous, and love the needle gauge.
    Make the podcast time for what suits you. If you can manage a longer time, all well and good. But don't force it, or the enjoyment will be gone for you.
    All the best

  3. Hi Emily,
    I enjoy your podcasts very much and do like the shorter length when time is limited. Do whatever length makes you happy. Your enthusiasm makes the podcast so much fun!

    Love the matching adult and baby socks!

  4. Hi, Emily - I really enjoy your energy for your projects and the podcast. Those baby socks? adorable!
    For the podcast length I recommend doing whatever works for you when you sit down to record, don't force anything. If you have a lot to say, we will all enjoy a longer podcast. If you just have a little to say - we will enjoy that too. To me, as a listener, I'm not tied to how long someone 'makes' their podcast - whatever it is, it is!
    Merry Christmas!

  5. Yay! I just watched your podcast! One of your subscribers told me =) So glad you love your stamp!

    =) Olga

  6. I really like you podcast! I'm quite sure that I will follow it whether it is short or long ;-) Have a great weekend!
