  1. Another great podcast. Glad to hear the lads noticed the jumper, as a mum to 2 teens, there are days I’m not certian they notice other mortals unless they are gaming.
    Love the magnatunes link. Jami Sieber’s cello work is phenomenal!
    If you are ever keen to introduce the concept of left-handed knitting (knitting off the right needle) in the podcast I would be honoured to a guest! and you can check out comments about me and my DVD on ravelry too.

  2. Phew, I’m so relieved to hear that you don’t wear your Ugg boots outside the house. You had me really worried there for a moment– I thought I’d have to avoid you at knitting events.

    P.S. have you seen my latest dyeing experiments? I got a colour slightly different from khaki.

  3. Just listened to 54 and 55. Nearly forgot to pick up the boy! Thoroughly enjoyed them both David. Does Alice Starmore consider her designs unisex? Just a thought to ponder.

  4. Have to laugh about the Ugg boots — I think in California in the US they wear them around outside. And of course they start to look “worn” 15 seconds after one takes them out of the box!

  5. Phew, so glad about the Ugg boots too! LOL
    I was at a Xmas market last weekend with an American lady, and she was wearing them outside the house. Hubby made a disparaging comment about them…and I tried not to laugh!
    I have my moccies on now, but I don’t go out the house with them on (well, only to put out the rubbish, or collect the mail)
    I am really enjoying your podcasts,and I am backtracking as I am new to podcasts!
    Great to hear an Aussie accent!
