Sticks & String

A podcast by an Australian bloke who knits.

Show 78 – Itches

School holidays have started, two weeks off – with some luck I’ll get back to people who have left messages.

A guest essay this week, thanks very much to Kate.
A new book kindly sent by Beth, thanks to her also, it’s wonderful
The Ram II club is here.
When writing these up I realised I’d played the Justin Bianco track in show 44, but it’s not reminding me of itself, I’m sure there’s another song…
