Required listening

It makes my day when Sara posts a new episode. I settle into my knitting space and listen to each incredibly thoughtful episode. I’ve learned about pie baking, poetry, natural dyeing and of course knitting from Sara. I can’t wait for the next episode.

calming + chill

While in self isolation i sort out a knitting podcast. i was so excited to finally make some progress on my knitting skills in all my new alone time (i’m a crocheter already). I listened to one new episode and was hooked. Obsessed about learning more about Sara’s own knitting origin story, I located Sara’s first couple of years of podcasting on her website. This podcast is exactly what I need right now and i’m thrilled to have hundreds of episodes in front of me on my new knitting journey. Thank you Sara.

Soul food

I love this podcast! Sara discusses all of my favorite topics: fiber arts, spinning/knitting, food and many other creative endeavors. I just started listening and can’t wait for the next episode. This is truly food for my soul - thank you for sharing your beautiful voice!
