I will be contacting you ladies! So be deciding which one of my patterns you would like, and I'll get it right out to you! 

Thanks for watching! Until next time... Happy Knitting!!!


  1. Great job and so much fun! PS - I love your new profile photo :) PPS - don't include me in the giveaway count, LOL.

  2. I don't often watch vidcasts because I find it harder to set aside the time - but I am so glad that I did! It's fun seeing you both "in person" and you have great rapport with each other! Your yarn bowl is GORGEOUS!


  4. Discovered the podcast through British designer Louise Tilbrook who mentioned you on her IG feed.
    Just watched and enjoyed very much. I will work my way back through previous episodes. Thank you :)

  5. Nope third time wasn't a charm, forth try at comment and compliments! Fun to watch, great job, and go knit a sweater! 😁😘 I will help you if you need a cheerleader! See you on instagram! Squezel

  6. I really enjoy your podcast and you look like you are having a great time doing it! Nice to see a NorCal girl podcasting. Diana seems like a real natural, hope to see her on your podcast again.

  7. This was the first time I watched and I enjoy the guest Diana. Looks like you are having a blast. Maybe you can review more yarn and suggest patterns that aren't too hard but quick knits. Many thanks and keep up the good work

  8. Great job Diana! I know her from the Santa Clara Valley meetup group. It's nice to see another Bay Area podcast/videocast. I've tended to listen to podcasts because I do it while driving, doing chores, etc. I'm going to try to add this one into my regulars.
