Episode 12: Monkey off My Back

For clarification:
  1. Sheep are bred not "breeded" (grammar please?)
  2. Wendy Johnson didn't personally email me about her mystery KAL-('Jessica, you must hear about my great idea...') I subscribe to her blog via email :0)
  3. Marian1 contacted me on Ravelry to let me know that the YAI Knit-A-Thon was a huge success and almost $4000 was raised- knitters rule!!
