    Thanks for the lovely piece by Christine Peymani. I thought I was listening to NPR! Very touching. I wish her and her husband the very best in their search for that special child.

    I have been knitting for about 10 years but just recently discovered knitting podcasts. My husband gave me an iPod Touch for my 60th birthday and it really helped me to ward off alzheimer’s by learning how to use it. It was hard, but I was motivated by the fact that there were knitting shows I could listen to! Oh man, get out of my way – I’m getting those shows! So I’ve tried them all out and have sorted out the ones I really like: 1) It’s a Purl, Man, 2) Stash and Burn, 3) Faery Knitting, and 4) Cast-on. You are a jewel of a find, Mr. It’s a Purl, Man! Thank you very much. I’m only on episode # 5, so I happily have lots more to listen to before I’m current.
