Destiknit the Podcast

I am testing out a new format for this blog – podcasting.  It seems many of us enjoy our bloggers but may not have time to sit and read them, however, listening is almost always an option.  Please let me know what you think of this by emailing me at destiknit AT gmail DOT com or commenting on the blog. Thanks!

Karatstix – All my WPI tools are $6, yarn bobbins are $5 and stitch markers are $1 each.  For custom orders I usually include a few free stitch markers :).  The Kitchener Stitch Tags are $8.  I also do a 6-Inch ruler for $8.  The 1-Inch Stitch Gauge Rule is $6.  So there’s a pretty good list of under $10 items :)

  1. I just downloaded episode 46 from iTunes and was so happy to have found your podcast! I enjoyed both your book review and “chatting” but also the info about the spinning wheel. I am just starting to get into spinning (by that I mean gathering info etc) and think it will lead to owning an Alpaca one day, and your reviews of the spinning wheels was very informational and helpful. Plus something that doesn’t hurt is…you have a great voice for podcasting. Thank you for taking your time.
    I also agree %110 with you about free vs. charging for patterns.


  2. I love your podcast. It’s like sitting with a friend & chatting. I love your energy and all the information you provide.

    In episode #47, you talked about several online magazines. Is there somewhere to find your list so I can look them up. I can always relisten to that part of the podcast if there isn’t a list available.

    I really enjoyed listening to your story about the antique spinning wheel. I love antiques too & history of those antiques. It’s nice to hear a young woman discussing this who appreciates antiques.


    • Ack! Hi Susan, thank you for reminding me! I am uploading my notes (URLs included) now ^_^


      • Thanks
