    Very happy that you’re back, great episode!

    Here’s a few more podcasts worth a listen, although it’s unlikely you have’t heard of them:

    (Another European podcaster! I for one would gladly welcome more of you, because, as you said, the ones from the States are understandably US-specific in terms of events and new yarns.)

    I haven’t listened much to KIPping It Real so I can’t really compare, but the host of Manic Purl is definitely another sweet girl.

    Julie of Forgotten Treasures … wait I mean Forgotten Classics here. Thank you very much for your kind words! I actually do listen past the essay, as witness my interested note taking during your podcast mentions. And I knit, although in a very lack luster fashion compared to most of the knitters I run into today. I’m just an oddity in not caring about hearing people talk about their knitting …

    Lovely piece on inspiration … thank you!

    Katie, thanks for the “shout out” on your podcast. This is Susan, from Knitajourney. I’m glad you enjoy the podcaster interviews. I’ve heard from a few of my listeners that would like to hear YOU interviewed. Are you feeling up for that?

    Thanks for sharing your list of podcasts. A podcast you didn’t mention is Never Not Knitting. It is definitely worth a listen!

    Going back to my teaching job in early September has set me back badly in my knitting and my podcast listening, so I just got to your newest episode this afternoon. What a treat from start to finish! And I just had to go take a look at the Champagne Fizz hat after your description set me off laughing. After seeing the photos – and it almost seems an abuse of the model that Interweave includes bonus (!) photos – I have to wonder if perhaps the designer had a hand in those hotel curtains.
