Question from lizzlizzlizz
I’d love to hear about some of your pre-podcasting knits, and maybe a recap of your favorite FOs you’ve made. What have you worn/used the most? I also love hearing about inspiration- who do you stalk for inspiration? Is there anyone who always has great taste in patterns that you follow? What tv shows or movies are your favorite to knit to? How has podcasting changed your knitting? Obviously Leslie is less of a monogamous knitter, but has it impacted y’all in other ways?
Basically you guys could read out of the phone book and I’d listen. I hope your technology issues are resolved soon! I can’t imagine how frustrating that is!
