  1. Hello David, I have followed your podcast since the beginning. Always enjoyed a bit of chit chat about cats, your backyard and school etc. but mostly waited to hear about all aspects of your knitting. Recently, by the time you’ve devoted so much time to promoting, played a very long music piece and chatted about everything else under the sun, would it be fair to say yours is not actually a knitting podcast anymore.

  2. hello David,
    Your podcast is in my top 3. I usually listen when I am on my early morning walk. On the recent podcast when you were recording outside the bird noises really startled me. I thought we had new STRANGE birds in Illinois! Then I realized the sound was coming from your backyard. It took me aback several times. I have to say those Australian birds can really let out a loud SQUAUK when they want to.

  3. Hi David! I just wanted to remind you that your podcast is the best of all of the podcasts available…THE BEST. I would rather listen to one of your podcasts over and over again than listen to anyone else’s. I don’t know how you do it, but your example of dedication motivates me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for (approaching) three years of podcasting. You have kept me company on long drives, in snarled traffic and on several dark cold days when my spirits were low.

    You are THE BEST
    ****THANK YOU****
