Podcasts seem to be proving more and more popular at the moment. I watch quite a few knitting and crochet podcasts so I thought I'd share some of them with you, there's a few new ones which I've come across lately as well as the more established ones and I know that some of you enjoy watching knitting podcasts too so I thought there might be some here which you don't know about. I wish I was confident enough to make one myself but I'll stick to showing my knitting projects on my blog.
I'll start with some of my favourites.
Giddy Knits. Helen lives in Surrey with her husband and two young boys and since she started podcasting has started her own yarn dyeing business, Giddy Yarns.
Craft House Magic. Ellie hosts this podcast which, as well as knitting, includes sewing, bobbin lace and other crafts too. This is such a happy podcast and I always enjoy each episode.
Bumble Stitches. Nicola's podcast is all about knitting, she produces some wonderful garments and she always has plenty to share.
Little Drops of Wonderful. Ali is primarily a crocheter, she admits that it's her first love, but she's recently started knitting too and this podcast includes a bit of both.
Harriet's House. Harriet is a fairly new knitter and she also crochets and sews.
Stranded Podcast. Amy's podcast is one of the more established ones but it's one of my favourites. I like that her podcast is very regular and that I know there'll usually be a new episode for me to watch each Thursday.
Cherry Heart Podcast. Sandra is another well established podcaster. She's a pattern designer and podcasts about both knitting and crochet.
There are some very successful knitting podcasts out there which have thousands of subscribers but, for the most part, I find that the podcasts which have a smaller audience seem more personal. One of the things I really enjoy about blogging is striking up conversations and friendships, and this applies with the podcasts that I watch too. I do still enjoy watching some of the more successful podcasts but the hosts seem out of reach in a way.
The Little Tailoress.
Sew Sweet Violet.
Inside Number 23.
Little Bobbins Knits.
I've recently come across some new podcasts which, so far, have only a few episodes, however, they look very promising.
Ollie & Bella. Sherrie is a crocheter who has recently taken up knitting.
Gussets and Godets. Christina podcasts about her knitting and sewing projects.
Love to Sew. Caroline blogs about knitting, though of course, she Loves to Sew too.
Birdbox Podcast. Jon is the dyer behind Mr B's Yarns, he podcasts with his wife Clare, who makes project bags for their shop on Etsy, and Clare's sister, Beki.
Funkyforty. Mel has started a podcast about knitting, crochet, sewing and embroidery. Like me, she stopped knitting when she was about twenty and didn't pick her needles up again until she was in her forties.
Back to Blighty. Becky had recorded videos in the past but she has just started a new podcast about both knitting and sewing.
There's a couple of podcasts which, at the moment, I'm working my way through all their past episodes.
Knitting Expat Podcast. Mina was a newish knitter when she first started her podcast back in 2015 but she's now a prolific knitter and pattern designer, I'm enjoying working my way forward right from where it all began.
Eldenwood Craft. Emma is a knitter and she also makes project bags for her Etsy shop, which is very successful. It seems that all the other podcasters I watch have got at least one of Emma's bags, they're very popular. I'm just about up to date with this podcast now and I've enjoyed all the past episodes.
If you haven't yet given podcasts a go, I would definitely recommend them. I enjoy watching the latest episodes whilst I sit down and do a bit of knitting. If any of you can recommend any other knitting podcasts I'd appreciate you leaving me a comment.
