    Marly and Katelyn, I loved getting to know more about you both on today’s podcast. The knit capelet is lovely. I especially like its asymmetrical contrasting collar that can be worn up or down or a little of both! Hope your fingers and wrist heal quickly, Marly.

  2. Chris Lopez says:

    I loved today—well I always love the podcast, but I really enjoy Marly having a chance to just talk about what she loves. I really like that the caplet doesn’t restrict movement of your arms.

  3. Angela says:

    I love the capelet and look forward to the pattern! I’m so excited to knit my first sweater with Marly!!

  4. Heather Spinden says:

    The yarn podcast I really enjoyed it. I always look forward to them. Your capelet is fantastic. Love the colors. Getting to know you and Katelynn. I am a crocheter but most of all I love to knit. I have been knitting since I was 5 years old and now I am in my 50’s. I am busy knitting for my friends. I love seeing their faces with the finished project. Keep up the fantastic job, Marly and Katelynn. Love you two.

  5. Meggan Lloyd says:

    Loved the capelet and am looking forward to a pattern because it would be great for the weather in the metro area today, 3/13.

  6. Colleen Caro says:

    I have been listening to Marly forever. It is my weekly treat and inspiration. Love the caplet. Keep up the good work =)

  7. Serena Lee says:

    So… full disclosure, when I saw the capelet it the background, it was pretty but I didn’t think it was really my thing. Marly, when you tried it on, I decided I needed one too!! You definitely need to listen to Katelynn and work on the pattern. 😉

  8. Carri Benson says:

    Loved getting to know more about you Marly! I totally love your sense of humor! And the capelet is lovely!
    You should interview Katelyn next. That would be lovely. (LOL You’d think the key word was any derivative of love)

  9. Rachel King says:

    This was such a wonderful podcast, I loved learning all about Marly Bird, and that CAPELET is lovely and perfect for the cold weather here!

  10. Christina Ross says:

    So much fun watching this! I love getting to know you. I’m sure I can speak for everyone when I say we all feel like you’re our friend! Of course we want to talk with you the caplet was adorable on you!! Looks warm and cozy!

  11. Mary A Helgesen says:

    I love the capelet – and most of your designs. I do, however, prefer a cape with buttons instead of putting on over my head.

  12. Jennifer Miller says:

    Great podcast! It was fun to hear about you and only you, lol! The capelet is gorgeous. I like the length too, and the collar is awesome. Looking forward to adding this to my To Do list.

  13. Melissa says:

    I’ve never worn a capelet, I don’t know if I would like one or not. But on you it looks lovely! Thanks for the podcast, I listened to it in the car, but went back to check out the capelet everyone was raving about!
