Always fun and very informative

My favourite knitting (and more) podcast. I love the variety of the chat and the different sections covered plus some insight into life in the USA and in Persia.
Jasmin and Gigi have such a loving relationship as mother and daughter and I was so concerned when Gigi was taken ill . I’m glad she’s back on the road to recovery and straight back on her sewing course. I’d love to see some of her creations.
When I first started listening Genevieve joined them as a third generation. Maybe we’ll hear from her again one day.

Part of the knitting family

I love this podcast and feel like a part of the Knitmore family. It is a really gentle but interesting listen and I look forward to it each week and play when I have a bit of me time

Funny, informative and joyful

I love this podcast. I’ve been listening for a little over a year now but have worked my way through three years of podcasts this year by listening to earlier episodes while waiting for each new instalment. It is now a fixed part of my Saturday morning routine.

My knitting has been reinvigorated - hearing about Jasmine and Gigi’s progress with their projects spurs me on to pick up my needles and I’ve discovered lots of new patterns to tempt me to cast on too. I love hearing about the kids and the cooking and sewing chat is always interesting too. I also enjoy the fact they don’t shy away from bigger topics like politics and how to make ethical purchases. It feels like sitting down at their kitchen table for a catch-up each week, despite living on the opposite side of the Atlantic. Always a great listen.
