We talked about the dude who sells knitting for what it’s worth – check out this guy…
Hey folks… The Boston Globe has an article about men who knit and I got included. It’s very exciting to be a part of the group of people they featured and to have all my knitting projects listed… I am super thrilled.
In this episode, we interview the owner of Gather Here in Cambridge, MA. Guido and I also delight you (we utterly delight you, I said) with tales of our current knitting projects: Quercus, Color Affection, and Baby Surprise Jacket. Guido’s all aquiver over his yarn from Green Mountain Spinnery, so you should check them out if you haven’t yet done so. Last but not least, please join us on Ravelry. We’re dying (not dyeing, but maybe later) to hear from you!

This episode was put together in a On this episode created in a very busy crafty week. Tuesday included a trip to see Brenda Dayne of Cast-On at WEBS. Wednesday included a talk by Tara Swiger about her new book and marketing craft hosted by Gather Here. Friday rounded out the week with a talk by Clara Parkes at The Common Cod Fiber Guild. Lots of great talk about craft, memory, marketing, and passion.
In my final remarks at the end of the show I mention the following:
In some ways it seems that the question “Have I pod faded?” is an obvious thing. I mean, I have not put out a new show in a long time. But, it’s not that simple. I have been planning and recording things in the meantime, it’s just that for many reasons all this work has not seen the light of day. So, while others are clear about my pod fading status, I am unsure and unwilling to say that my knitting podcast is dead.
