Wow! Donna writes very moving stories. I can totally imagine the kinds of "dated" sweaters her grandma may had made.

I love listening to your podcast! I'm going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool with my sister in May 2015. Excited for it after listening to your experience in New York! : )

britgirlknits said...

Please enter me for the book giveaway! I would love to visit Rhinebeck one day, great episode!

Judy said...

I loved listening to you and Hannah talk about Rheinbeck. We were there this summer, and even without sheep and wool, it was a magical place. I'm envious of your trip! I also loved hearing Donna read the excerpt from her book. I wonder how many of us share those treasured memories of learning to knit with our grandmothers. .....and of wearing their creations.
Thanks for a great listen!

BEWell said...

Your podcast is a wonderful conduit of connection in the knitting community. Taking time and care to share field trips (Wool Festival fun), relationships felted together in fiber (Hannah Fettig, your daughter, the Ravelry Meetup) and of course personal stories (Donna's wonderful narrative) gives us, your listeners a sense of belonging, of extended community, and of recognition. Thank you - and I look forward to the next episode.

I've been to the Stories in Stitches website, and from what I've seen, the mix of practical, academic and visual information is right up my alley!

Knitting and stories make for a great combination. It's probably why I like the Never Not Knitting Podcast so much and would also enjoy "Stories and Stiches."

carol said...

I have to agree with Donna that the hands remember what the brain forgot...I was also taught as a child to knit, and picked it up thirty years later and was shocked to realize that my hands knew just what to do!

I love that these books allow for more of the back-story of these lovely knits--it's what always fascinates me about knitwear. Who was it made for, and what prompted this particular pattern? Such a wonderful set of books!
