Sometimes the little things in life bring great happiness. Especially during times of turmoil, they come to mean a lot.

Podcasts are like that for me. Listening to them makes me happy, no matter what else is going on in my life. I have a giant list of favorites, but one which always puts a smile on my face is Marly Bird’s Yarn Thing. Marly’s energy infuses her podcasts with a sense of fun. I’ve been wanting to meet her for the longest time, and finally got a chance to at the Vogue Knitting Live LA event this past weekend. See her fantastic smile? You can hear it in her podcasts as she interviews fellow yarn-obsessed luminaries.

I finally chased down Marly at the Market. She seemed a little surprised to have her very own stalker. But I’ve been wanting to thank her for her podcast for the longest time!

If you want to listen to great interviews, participate in live call-ins, and get some laughs, you can check out the Yarn Thing Podcast on BlogTalkRadio or  iTunes.
