  1. What a great interview, David! Rob Costlow’s formal music background sounds much like mine after Jr. High. Only I was told that my hands were too small to play serious music so I should have surgery on the skin separating my fingers to stretch my hands for a better reach. Needless to say, I did NOT have that done but went on to study and learn on my own! I enjoyed teaching piano lessons and accompanying choirs and playing for enjoyment….no knife was going to touch these hands, though. I wonder if I still would have been a knitter. Hmmmmm. Now that the baby that I was waiting for has been born and it is a sweet little girl named Chloe, I am going to be casting on for my own BSJ while at Knitting Camp…a pink one as requested! Carpe lanam!

  3. I love your podcast. I have been listening since you began but have finally posted a comment. I especially enjoy the sounds the cats make as you are podcasting. You have inspired me to become more fearless in my knitting endeavors. Thank you so much, Susan in Massachusetts, USA>
