    You are just adorable! Really great quality right off the bat too!

  2. Enid Shaw says:

    I agree with Leslie, great for a first episode. Is that a purple scarf/stole hanging on the door? Would be interested in a close up if possible.
    take care,

  3. Enid Shaw says:

    Whoops!!!!! I forgot to mention I came here after watching Knittabulls video, she was very complimentary about you.

  4. evaissues says:

    You did a good job on your first podcast. Next time try to show things a little longer for the camera, I couldn’t quite see everything fully. This will become better with time I’m sure. 🙂 Loved the pictures at the end too.

  5. Anna says:

    Lovely ramble, Sam! I enjoyed it very much and look forward to the next installment.

  6. I LOVE your new podcast!!! Keep up the great work!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  7. Andi says:

    Yeah! Great job on your first video podcast. Well done you. Love that you mentioned you are not a manogamous knitter, I am in the same boat. Can’t wait to see future podcasts!

    Always looking for another great podcast to knit with and I really liked listening to you! Heard about you from this weeks KnitGirllls episode.
    Looking forward to next week :o)

  11. Gerry says:

    The Knit Girllls sent me.
    Enjoyed your vidcast and look forward to your next episode.

  12. i loved your podcast you did a great job. I will be adding you to my reader so i can catch your next one.

  13. Nicole says:

    Hello! Found your podcast through the KnitGirllls, and I loved your first episode! I look forward to hearing more about your archeology work in particular; it’s something I’ve always been interested in.

    I’m now off to stalk you on Ravelry, so don’t be surprised if you get friended by someone called crimsn.

  14. Q says:

    Awesome 1st show- I have added you to my weekly list.
    Next time will you try and hold things slower and higher in front of the camera

    Excited to watch the next episodes!!!

  15. sumik says:

    Love the podcast and guess what? I believe that Sereknitty is still around but the name of her shop has changed to Mad Color Fiber Arts (

  16. Ruth says:

    Loved your first podcast a lot – although I do love watching all the US podcasters it’s so great to see us UKer’s having a go too!

  17. Not only will you take better pictures when
    you have a deep understanding of all your camera equipment, you’ll be faster and more efficient. The best place to get inexpensive props are rummages and thrift stores. Try to include these things to help bring out this excellent portrait.
