  1. I really enjoyed this episode. I’m going to try the two handed knitting. I can knit both ways so it should be manageable!! Thanks David. Linda

  2. Great episode, David! I love Philosopher’s Wool, the book, the technique and the video. I know. A bit overboard, but when I find something in knitting that I really like, like their wool, I end up checking it out more thoroughly. Why not? Life is too short not to pick and choose the best if you can! Thanks again!
