  1. I’m lucky enough to have custody of my mother’s copy of The Principles of Knitting; it’s the first reference I go to when I have a question. She bought it when it was first published, and has graciously allowed me to keep it at my house.

    Wonderful show as usual, full of good stuff.

    Oh and some of us don’t “stop listening” %-)) Sorry We just keep going and going…….

  3. Whew — good thing I finally read your blog — I was getting quite concerned that there was no show updates and that something had happened … and then saw the “next show will be 3/4 November”. Great! I admit it, I’m a “podcast junkie” (taken from a Ravelry group mantra). Maryjo

  4. Hello!! I recently discovered your podcast and just listened to the first episode. I LOVE your podcast! Your podcast is very professional, and listening to your accent is fabulous! It’s great to hear a guy’s perspective on knitting.

    I checked out your pictures, and your cats are beautiful! I like hearing your kitties in the background.

    I look forward to listening to all of your back episodes.

  5. Well Hello David, I have just returned from a week hidden away in a little cottage by the sea with my kids and IPOD for company…I downloaded a load of your podcast and you kept me entertained for many hours whilst I clicked away next to the fire. Thank you, it felt rude not to say hello after all the time I have spent listening to you. Thanks!
