  1. What an awesome podcast! I am just tuning in for the first time and I have to say I am stoked to see your knitting Mojo has returned! Your projects look lovely! I thought it was especially sweet to see the delightful treats your Mum sent (hurrah for Mums!)
    Our Rav group is doing Christmas in July so I'd be especially interested in knitting something blue with your group as a diversion from the holidays!
    Thanks for the podcast...I am off to join your group!

  2. I'm so glad your knitting mojo has returned. Looking forward to seeing your Sweet Grass Cowl. That's such a pretty pattern.

  3. Glad you got your mojo back. that new cowl pattern is really pretty.

    Thanks for mentioning my KAL. its always so exciting when i hear my podcast mentioned on other podcasts

  4. Great podcast as usual Clare. LOVE your new cowl pattern. Glad to see you are up for knitting again.


  5. Great as always! I am a tea drinker myself, I would love to know what your fave tea is. Happy knitting!!

  6. Yayy for the knitting mojo returning :) A KAL with a specific color would be awesome!! Now I'm off to watch the next episode!!


  7. Clare!- you've helped solve my problem of figuring out what the Cassian shawl from sock report was called. I cannot thank you enough- I had heard it on a video podcast and looked it up- screen shot the photo and didn't write down anything about it no designer name or pattern source. I think it'd be a beautiful wedding shawl. Anyways thanks so much- love the podcast and your accent.
