The benefit of a fandom where the main character is shippable with everyone? Lots of delightfully smutty fic :D Although, before this I hadn't given Jack/Martha too much thought. You can bet I will, now.

Author's Response: Jack/Everybody, pretty much. :)

If you do any sort of sequel, it should be titled YarnOver, and include some(lots) more Ianto. Also the fact that Owen considered knitting for the girls had me in stitches.

Author's Response: Sadly, there will be no more knitting!Jack stories. After Owen\'s death, I haven\'t the heart. See, there has to be Owen in a knitting!Jack story, usually with the final (snarky) word. Now that he\'s gone, I just can\'t do it. Plus also I\'m REALLY busy with my original work. If you like this, come over to my site and check it out. Little knitting but lots of, uh, purling...

Very Doctor Martha-y to have her naming off body parts in a jokingly clinical manner during sex. People never have her do this during NC-17 fics (at least not ones I've read) and I always wonder why not....

Author's Response: Well, she rattles them off to Matron in \"Family of Blood,\" I don\'t see why she wouldn\'t in this case. :)

I love that Ianto managed to make tidy finely stitched socks. It fits his personality so well.

Author's Response: This was the idea of the gals at Ravelry--that Ianto did complicated colorwork on tiny needles, and it made sense. :) A nice pair of understated argyles just also went with his fashion sense.

Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant! I wish that knitting were that sexy when I tried it...I can't knit, I crochet. Maybe if I had a teacher like Jack it would have turned out better! Love this story, amazing!

Author's Response: Remember that it\'s a tactile experience, knitting. :) Have someone show you how to knit continental-style; you tension the yarn exactly like crochet, and I\'ve had good luck teaching crocheters in that method. Well. I don\'t teach like *Jack* teaches, but then, who does? :D Thank you so, so much!

Wow. That's all I can think to say. Wow!

Author's Response: I hope that\'s a good wow! Thanks for reviewing either way! :)

Aww brilliant big finish, very hot, are we gonna hve a sequal?? Maybe Jack/Martha/Ianto???? Great funny story.

Author's Response: Thank you! No sequels of an NC-17 nature are planned (this story is part of a larger continuity that I\'d like to continue to maintain). Martha is serious about it being a one-time deal. HOWEVER. We shall see how S2 Torchwood/S4 DW go. I may do a bit about Jack assuring Ianto about his place in Jack\'s affections, but that will require more research. ;)

Hands over cig and beer. Cig's a bit stale cause pack ain't been used in 5 years.

Hell, I"ll have one with you.

Author's Response: I haven\'t had a smoke in 10+ years and I tell ya. Though Jack would say, \"If you smoke after sex, you need more lube.\"

Oh OH *wholf whistle* more please. Lol Jack's different verison of knitting. ( I knew the innocence wouldn't last long andi love Jack/martha pairings!!!)

Author's Response: Oh, never fear, baby, I\'m bringin\' it! :) And it *is* innocent. Jack sees nothing dirty or wrong in his sexuality. He\'s just trying to make them both feel better!
