Pam & Greg are great!

Fun and often funny chat about knitting, other fiber arts & life! They also do separate Book Club episodes where they give a good overview of a book about knitting or fiber arts. My review feels dull, but their podcast is not! 🙂

Nittinmama3 ,

Awesome potcast!

I love the relationship that Greg and Pam have. They enjoy each other’s company as well as each other’s projects. Give this podcast a listen. It won’t disappoint.

leftsteve ,

The one podcast I play as soon as it comes out.

I was unable to hear the podcast why I was overseas working. I was in a remote area that did not have reliable Internet connection. I love Greg and Pam, but I do miss Joey humor.
Keep up the good work,
