Knitting Podcast blog list is a really helpful resource for finding new podcasts, video or audio. Check it out.

Two Chicago yarn stores:
Knit1--dog friendly store. Malabrigo, Noro, Kauni
Small but inviting shop
Mom bought Mendocino by Crystal Palace. Pretty rainbow colorway in long strips, a la Noro but in merino so it was very soft.

Knitters Niche – a little messy; I got a sad vibe from the place. Dream in Color, Lornas Laces, lots of knitted items for sale, lace shawls and scarves.
I bought Knitscene Winter 2011. I normally love Knitscene but was a little underwhelmed with this issue.
