Brenda Daynes voice is a real pleasure to listen to. She always has something interesting to say about knitting as well as about life and she says it in an original way. To top it all off she plays terrific music.

Brenda has the best podcast for knitters and wanna-bes. Its just a great hour of life and laughter and knit-talk. Her voice is lively and vivacious and a pleasure to listen to, and her background as a writer brings a very special intelligent word-craft to the show. Its better than much of the professional radio content I listen too (CBC, BBC). I listen with my 11 year old and we both enjoy it on different levels (daughter is knitting!). Thanks!!

She encourages other podcasters and generally provides the ballast and loft for the criss-crossing worlds of creating art. Its the best!

This is a fabulous podcast. Brenda has a great voice and is a pleasure to listen to. Her podcasts are so informative. It is as if she is sitting in my livingroom and chatting about knitting.

Knit like the wind
I love this show, I have no idea how to knit, but Brenda should have her own show on CNN about knitting. Its that riveting. Fantastic quality audio too.

Keep up the great work!
I am so enjoying the show. I never get to talk about my knitting, and listening to you talk about it makes me feel normal!
