I am thrilled that the Knitsonik podcast is back from its long hiatus!!!!!! I love knitting along to the wooly soundscapes, knitting project descriptions and the impromptu accordion sing-alongs make me smile and oftentimes laugh! WELCOME BACK KNITSONIK!!! You are irreplaceable in the knitting podcast genre. Thank you for putting out another episode, I hope it continues!
This is a wonderful podcast that incorporates sounds, knitting and a wonderful voice. I've listened to two so far and found them informative and unique. Give her a try!
Addictive, yet satisfying
I have followed Ms. Ford from her blog to iTunes, and I am THRILLED! This is one of the best podcasts out there, IMO. Ms. Ford studies and collects sounds, and until I began listening to her, I had no idea what an interesting world it is, especially since she focuses on wool and the British Isles, two of my most beloved interests. If you've ever thought about the terrior of sound, or how a handknit sock is like the sand on a beach, you absolutely must follow Ms. Ford on her journey. (:
