The Hot Seat

More deserted island knitting, tennis balls and felting, finished projects, ideal knitting needles, favorite teachers, and the "when I grow up" question.

  1. You guys are so fun to listen to. I was soooo excited to see there was a new episode.

    When felting I usually put a couple pairs of jeans in with my project with really low water level.

  2. I believe the blanket name is actually pronounced VŌN-tep-puh LAHT-visk HAW-guh.

  3. I am a true podcast junkie and while I've had your shows downloaded in iTunes, have just started listening. Wow -- I'm impressed!. You have lots of info about patterns (Ann/pinneguri is a GOOD online friend of mine, so I'm thrilled you highlighted her), and a great format.

    I also feel that podcasters/reviewers cannot say enough about different needles they use -- so I was happy to hear about the signature needles, which I have never seen. I use mostly small sizes, so am hoping they will come out with those -- size 6 -- hardly ever for me LOL

    So congrats on your show -- and thanks!

  4. Hi - I've only just discovered your podcast and am really enjoying listening to you both. I have a question for Deidre - you talk about the sample knitting you do and I wonder what checking process a pattern goes through before being published? This is a subject close to my heart as I've just finished knitting a baby cardigan which was so poorly written and contained one mistake that I feel sure no knitter had been anywhere near that pattern before it got published! I'd be interested in your thoughts ... thanks! Best wishes, Kate, Nottingham, UK.
