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.

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!

Two fabulous ladies

I love listening to Gayle and Sharlene, they’ve often been responsible for a lot of my casting on of new knitting projects. Their show notes are always really comprehensive so you can visualise what they’ve been talking about and see their own interpretations of patterns. They compliment each other perfectly and are always jolly and enthusiastic. I look forward to their podcast appearing in my feed.
