  1. Thanks for the mention of LibriVox–I didn’t know about it and now I’m happily working my way through Jane Eyre and Sense and Sensibility as I knit away.

  2. Wow! I just found your podcast today and think that it is terrific. I’ve been listening to knitting podcasts for a couple of years now. Your interview with Sarah Bradberry was great. And now I also know which book (Lincoln’s) to buy my husband for our upcoming 35th anniversary.
    The second weekend in November I am taking a workshop in reading Japanese patterns so your knitting book choices prompted me to take a closer look at the Knitting Pattern books now! Coincidence? Maybe not..?
    Thanks for putting in the time to make our knitting adventures even more enjoyable!
