Emily is such a fantastic interviewer-she makes each question very conversational! And I love her brilliant idea of introducing listeners to the everyday knitters among us. We all have a story to tell!
Fun and different!
I love this podcast because it is so different from the other knitting-related podcasts available. I so enjoy listening to each knitter’s story and I can relate to or gain understanding of other perspectives. It makes a great companion while I’m knitting - makes you feel like you are just sitting at a knit night with friends!
So great to connect with everyday knitters
It’s so great to be able to hear the stories of other knitters that are like me. Some are similar and some are totally different. And that’s what makes the knitting community so unique. It’s so great to find a podcast that celebrates that.
