  1. Hello David,
    My name is Jackie and I am an Irish colleen living in Scotland 🙂 I have just discovered your podcast and have downloaded all the episodes which I am listening to each day. Thank you so much, your podcasts are fantastic and a joy to listen to.
    I am a bit of a novelty with regard to knitting. I am 48 and am only just learning to knit! People who knit, and have reached the grand old age of 48 are considered experienced knitters. My aunt was the only knitter in the family, but we did not live close to her when I was younger and I did not know anyone else who knitted, so I did’nt either. I am discovering, for the first time, the joy and happiness of it all 🙂 There is so much information online now, as well as lots of books which give me so much help, and of course podcasts such as yours which give me so much inspiration. My daughter moved to Queensland a few years ago and has fallen in love with Australia. I don’t think I will get her back again:-( however I have told her to listen to your podcasts and read your blogs as she is starting to get interested in learning how to knit.
    Anyway, thank you once again and I am looking forward to working my way through the rest of your podacasts.
    All the very best,
