Sticks & String

A podcast by an Australian bloke who knits.

Show 175 – News

Busy since the last show, but the first book is ready to go to its audience tomorrow as school goes back.

The Audible special offer is here.

The music this week is from Takashi Matsuishi Spark’s album Preludes from Magnatune.

Follow me on twitter, @reidyd, for various photos including the panoramas take with the 360 application on the iPhone.

The yarn I reviewed, Paton’s Country Tweed is a nice chunky blend, perfect for winter, but I can’t put a link in because it appears to have been discontinued (which explains why it was so cheap I suppose).

While I was in Canberra last week, I went to the Handwritten exhibition, and added some 360 panoramas to my collection.

A direct link to the show is here, so you can play it on your computer.

  2. Hi David,

    I really enjoy your podcasts and have listened to them since I first found out about them.

    Have you stopped doing them or am I just missing something by not going through Ravelry?

    I hope everything is ok with you and your Mum.

  5. Hi David,
    Thank you so much for the podcasts. I came to the show fairly late, about 2 years ago, I had no idea that you had been recording for 6, that long! I can quite understand that you are finding it difficult to record on a regular basis, with all that you have to fit in to your busy life! Teaching is busy enough(I am a teaching assistant here in UK and watch teachers trying to do a great job. I know that your Mum is not well and I know you have many other interests as well. Let’s keep in touch over on Ravelry. I will miss your voice and the essays, which I particularly enjoyed and found myself nodding in agreement on many occaisions!
    Best wishes

  7. I don’t know if you still read this forum, but just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your podcasts. I have been having a hard time finding one that even comes close to yours for information, encouragement and art. I hope all is well with you and the cats and that someday you let us all know how you are doing. Take care and be well. Thanks for everything. Mary Ann
