Listen to this even if you don't much like knitting.

This is one of the best podcasts ever! It has plenty of silliness and laughter along with some interesting knitting. Check out Melanie's gerbil items of knitwear on Ravelry. She's got a lovely voice too!

One of my favourite podcasts!

Savvy girls rock!

I've recently returned to knitting after a few years break and found that the Internet has transformed the knitting landscape totally and utterly. Last time I was knitting was in the pre-ravelry and pre-podcast days. Just imagine! I've subscribed to many many knitting podcasts but this is my favourite one - the savvy girls are so funny and their relationship is so heartwarming. I love the travel, the food, the shopping and of course the gerbils (shhhh don't tell Debra). This is the only podcast I've subscribed to where I've gone back and downloaded ALL the episodes and I'm happily working my way through them all, chuckling and giggling away and envying the life and laughs the girls have.
