  1. Thank you for the great season. Your interviews are just as great as your essays. I’m looking forward to the next season and wondering what you have planned. Is there any way to post more pictures of your knitting and the topics of your essays? I imagine the Bendigo show will be a highlight of your break….Have fun and buy something yummy for the good work that you have done here!

  4. Hello from Canada! I’m finally caught up after finding your podcast through Lime and Violet. Thanks for entertaining me on my walks these past few weeks.

    Along with the knitting and cats, I really enjoy hearing about your weather. It’s high summer here and I am revelling in 30’s C.

    Enjoy your break.
