Episode 55: Handmade Home Truths

The Sweater of Doom is finally finished and whilst modeling the mohair beast behind the microphone, I’ll be discussing the professional advice some handmade sellers sought from a marketing expert; plus we take a look at the baby patterns you’ve recommended, there’s a new knitting book to review and the mother lode of crimes against knitting.

    Thank you very much! I’m just after exploding with laughter in my shared office while listening to the podcast on headphones – your despair at the pom-pom leg fancies was entirely hilarious. Being the only knitter in my office though, I knew the comic effect of this would not translate to my co-workers and was somewhat at a loss to explain what had been so hilarious.

      Thanks Michelle, exploding laughter is essential to survival in any office I think. Non-knitters are not fully aware of the terrible (and comedic) repercussions of a misapplied pom-pom. We have to save them from themselves… 😉
