View Full Version : Knitting Podcasts: Which Do YOU Prefer & Why?

I just searched "knitting" in iTunes and there were tons of free knitting podcasts. Whodathunkit?!?

Which ones do YOU listen to? I don't know any of these people and I can't listen to all.

I really like the KnitPicks podcast. Kelly is easy to listen to and she has good topics to talk about. The only other knitting podcast I've listened to is Cast-On. I like the knitting part of it, but I'm not a fan of the music she includes.

I am a big fan of Stitch Stud. I think it is mostly just listening to him that i really enjoy.

I listen to Lime and Violet too. They amuse me but are a leeettle over the top sometimes. ;)

I have a few others that i have loaded onto the iPod for this weekend. we'll see how they are later :)

Stitch Stud & His Bride, Knitters Uncensored, and Lime and Violet are my favorites. Really, the more off-topic they get, the more I laugh.

I like lime & violet a lot. It is my stress relief when I have had a really bad day. I tend to "hoard" the episodes so that I can be sure I have one when I "need" it.

I also like stash and burn, socks in the city, cast on, sticks and string (an Australian bloke), pixie purls (hi Pixie!) and pointy sticks.

I couldn't get into "it's a purl man" - I'm not sure why. There's also another one that didn't work for me - she "wrote" and then read her podcast. Some people could make that work, but she had a very different writing style than when she would occasionally just talk - it just wasn't fun to listen to.
