  1. hello
    I really enjoyed your podcast and have subscribed for future episodes. Thanks for taking the time to record it, I am really looking forward to the next one.
    Re the Knitter magazine, agreed with your comments about it entirely, however, if you do knit something from it and think you have "gone wrong" check the errata page, it may save you time. I now check every knitting magazine site for their erratas before starting a project.
    Thanks again for super podcast

  2. Sorry, I forgot to post the link for the Knit
    ter magazine errata

  3. I enjoy listening to the podcast. I plan on knitting the mystery pattern in the next couple of days. Can't wait to find out what it is!
