Great Voice and Content!
I'm loving this podcast! Even if you aren't a crafter/knitter there's plenty to laugh at and might even get you into knitting. Can't wait for more!
Engaging and fun
Easy to listen to and I feel like the host is talking directly to me. Sound quality is A+ and even my noncrafting SO enjoys listening when I'm playing it without earbuds.
Engaging and Entertaining
Dallas Ann could read the phone book with her voice and charm, and I would listen and smile. As a knitter, there's lots to relate to, but I think someone who isn't, or isn't YET, could really enjoy this conversational podcast that feels like your incredibly talented friend telling you stories about something she loves.
