    Honestly? Knowing me I’d probably put the yarn away in my studio – sorted by color and fiber – until some random time when I have a random idea for a random project. Right now afghans in school colors are consuming me…

  2. Cindi says:

    If I found extra yarn – I would find a pattern with techniques I’ve never done before and make it my experimental project.

  3. nancy gibbs says:

    I belong to a group that makes afghans for a local domestic assault shelter and Keystone Place, a homeless shelter. I would use the extra yarn to help in that effort.

  4. Leslie says:

    I would make hats for all my family members or something similar.

  5. Brenda Rupp says:

    I would give it to my grandmother who is 97 and still crochets!
    She still makes the most beautiful afgans!! Also hats for the babies at the hospital whose mom’s are in need.

  6. Diana Norwood says:

    I would give me it to the youth director at church!

  7. I’d make the biggest blanket in the world! Then I’d hide under it all winter.

  8. I’d make a cardigan and hat for my baby girl. <3

    i just heard the podcast and loved listening to Mac & Jon speak. i’m a librarian at our elementary school and quite coincidentally, both of them will be at a local bookstore this week so i’m going to see if they (probably just Mac ‘cos we’re in the Bay Area) would be able/willing to come visit our school! i’m not a knitter but i would give it to my daughter (she’s six) so she could learn :-) (i’m a quilter and what a dream come true to find an box with endless supplies of fabric!) thanks for the podcast!

    We visited the library just a couple days after this post and there was “Extra Yarn” displayed on a shelf! I snapped it up of course, and my four year old son has asked me to read it nearly every day since. I haven’t listened to the podcast yet but will enjoy it twice as much since I know the book is so enjoyed by my boy (and me!)

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing
    the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
