  2. On today’s podcast you mentioned that you were making goblins for D&D. Were you knitting those? I’d like to see a picture if possible 🙂 Thanks for the review on the knitting fantasy book.

  4. Hey David,

    Just a quick note to say that you are a podcast father. I started my own show after the show you did about how to podcast. (If you must know the mother is cast-on). I’m up to my 8th episode (one per month) and popularity is growing fast.

    Still enjoying your show as much as ever.

  5. Good morning!

    Just a little note to comment on the last several podcasts I’ve listened to…

    Loved the “rap” piece your student produced – very clever and shows how much I’m sure your students like you.

    Loved the Swedish music – lovely!

    Become a fan of Allison Crow and now Rhonda Lorence. Lovely music!!

    As a relatively new knitter – the first book I was shown by a friend was Viking patterns for knitting by Elsebeth Lavold. I loved the concept for the patterns and was immediately intimidated by the complexity. I could barely purl at that time. However, I did purchase the book shortly after – and love browsing through it from time to time.

    Thoroughly enjoying catching up on your podcasts.
