So relaxing x

I am working my way through your interesting and relaxing podcasts .You both are such natural talkers with kind voices , it’s like you are in the room . The podcasts never fail to entertain and the regular set up of them is reliably enjoyable. Five stars xxxxx

Wonderful, uplifting and fun.

Gayle and Sharlene and knowledgeable, friendly and have a gentle humour which is always kind. They talk about life, work and knitting, offering tips and tricks for everyone from beginners to experienced knitters. If you want something which is upbeat and uplifting, interesting and with no negative or unpleasant content, but which is never boring, this is the one for you.

BryanandBilly ,

Love this podcast - thank you Gayle and Sharlene!!

This is my absolute favourite knitting podcast (and podcast in general). I came to it late and devoured the full archive of episodes in less than a year. Just a lovely, engaging and thoughtful podcast by lovely, engaging and thoughtful people. I’ve learnt so much and really enjoy the warm sense of community and enthusiasm that this podcast has fostered. It’s very inspiring and accessible to all. Thanks Gayle and Sharlene - and I’m ashamed that I didn’t write this review much earlier!
