Sticks & String

A podcast by an Australian bloke who knits.

Show 48 – A butterfly flaps its wings

Why cleaning up can be hazardous to podcasting. Paintballing can also be hazardous but only to appearances.
Thanks to everyone who has suggested knitting software, but there’s room for more, so if you use any software, and you like it, please let me know.
Any ideas for a series 6 theme would be appreciated. I’ve got some show ideas, but no theme in mind yet.

  1. David, only found your podcast about 2 weeks ago and have listened to all of them. Love your podcast, and looking forward to the new one every week. I hope to get my invitation from ravelry any day now and look forward to seeing all your completed projects.

  2. Thanks for the review of the KnitPicks Harmony. I received a set as a Christmas gift and haven’t gotten them out yet to try them. When I sat down with a project already cast on, I was pleased to see your review. It’s good to know what troubles I might run into.
