Not just socks
I've been a longtime listener of a certain other podcast, but gave up due to the endless discussion of socks/doggie dribble stories. This podcast was a nice surprise. There's a mix of projects, some truly intelligent conversation and best of all, no hysterical screaming laughter.
Best new knitting podcast, hands down!
I listen to A LOT of knitting podcasts, and this is one of my top 5 after only a few episodes. Nicole and Jenny are fun, easy to relate to, and they crack me up. Add this knitting podcast to your lineup!
Great new podcast
I listen to many knitting podcasts. This is a great new addition to the lineup. Two educated women who are fun and informative. The reviews of knitting blogs are a nice touch that others aren't doing. I truly hope Jenny and Nicole keep at it!
