Very Enjoyable!

As you were speaking about why you podcast, you said that podcasting brought value to you through people you meet, new ideas, patterns, yarns, etc. Well that is exactly why I started listening to your podcast. I really enjoy listening to your makes, your yarny adventures, and your stories. You keep me company when I’m driving somewhere. ( Not that I drive all that much these days!) I also joined the Pigskin Party this year and I’m really enjoying that too! So, I would say your podcast is enjoyable on many levels.

Pick112 ,

Excellent and Positive Knitting Fiber craft Podcast

Jen’s podcast is uplifting and inspiring. She talks about knitting, crocheting, spinning and whatever other crafty adventures she has with her family. I always enjoy her organization tips and ideas she has about staying happy and fulfilled.

Love Bostonjen’s Podcast

This is a fantastic knitting podcast that has inspired me in my crafty adventures, but also in how I set goals, organize (not in the overly obsessive way but the liberating way), and for my health! Thank you, Jen, for the amazing content. I have loved your podcast for years and need to shout out your work!
