    Love your podcast and plan to go to iTunes to leave comments! I was surfing thru your projects and was interested in “afterthought” heel and was going to look at your project but lost page to that thread. I am looking for different heels applications and wanted to check out your socks. Don’t you hate it when you go down the rabbit hole and lose your place!! Thanks Jen for all you do for knitting – it’s a wonderful skill!!
