We had a brilliantly autumnal time at Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival, thank you to everyone who came to say hi. We had so many fun signings, and we even got to try the famed apple cider donuts! Safe to say we’ll be back next year. Here’s Lydia with Kiyomi and Sachiko and Linda Dubec, three of our Winter 2016 designers.

Lydia finished her Rocquaine, and is very pleased. It was the perfect Rhinebeck jumper, and she even got to wear it in the place it was dyed by the wonderful Emily Foden of Viola (we interviewed her for Pomcast 17) in Mooresburg, Ontario.

    My favourite episode has to be the one with the Stephen West interview! It was how I first heard of him (I was a very recent knitter when I started listening to the Pomcast!) and I have loved his aesthetic/mindset when it comes to knitting ever since! Love love love the podcast, keep up the fantastic job!

  2. Christoph October 29, 2016 at 8:10 pm #

    Hi there!

    I like every episode, but my favourite would be 16 (the interview with Susan Cropper was great!).

    Love the podcast!

    Cheers!

  3. Ann October 29, 2016 at 8:46 pm #

    My favourite pomcast, don’t remember what number, but it’s the one with your interview with Veera Välimäki. I samt on a bus travelling for ours and that pomcast really cheered me up!

  4. Iris October 29, 2016 at 9:08 pm #

    My fav episode is always the newest one! But I am still thinking about Caitlin Ffrench’s sustainability insights!

  5. Kristina October 29, 2016 at 9:47 pm #

    Hej pompom podcasters,
    I especially enjoyed listening to podcast episode 27. The interview with Amy Hendrix and listening to her talking about colors was such a pleasure! But actually I love all the episodes and all your giggles.
    Love,
    Kristina

  6. Susan October 29, 2016 at 10:04 pm #

    Every new podcast is my favorite, so this Halloween episode is my new favorite.

  7. Charlotte October 30, 2016 at 7:05 am #

    I only recently discovered Pomcast so I’m listening from start aiming to catch up! Currently at episode 15 or something… 😊 So far my favourite is with Stephen West, episode #13. Lucky me to have a long travel ahead of me today so I can knit and pomcastinate loads!!!

  8. Libby October 30, 2016 at 11:58 am #

    It’s a tie between this new Halloween episode and episode 20 with its wonderful Knitmas carols.

  9. Wei-Lin October 30, 2016 at 11:59 am #

    My favourite episode is 16 as you talk to Susan Cropper. Loop is my LYS and it’s where I took an intermediate class which totally changed knitting for me. It was lovely to hear her be interviewed

    Of course every episode is something to look forward too

  10. Samantha October 30, 2016 at 3:46 pm #

    I have listened to only about seven podcasts and have enjoyed them all! My favorite so far is #26 with Thea Colman.

  11. Carys Jones October 30, 2016 at 6:09 pm #

    Clara Parkes every time. Listening to her is like having a warming hot chocolate on a winter’s day 😊

  12. Emily Jackson October 30, 2016 at 8:30 pm #

    Hard to choose, but I loved episode 26 with Juju Vail and Thea Colman. I enjoy hearing the story about how Thea Colman started Baby cocktails. Also, I found a new non-wool Silverspun in this episode.

  13. Jules October 30, 2016 at 9:08 pm #

    Got to admit I am with Libby loved the Knitmas carols in podcast 20.

  14. Eric October 30, 2016 at 11:24 pm #

    I would have to say that whatever is the latest episode is my favourite since its the one I most recently loved :-)

  15. Alex October 31, 2016 at 12:43 am #

    Love the whole podcast, it makes me feel like I’m at a knitting circle with my friends when I’m really on a boring metro ride to work. Definitely one of my favorites was the interview with Amy Hendrix, hearing her talk about color and her journey was really cool. Also, the history tidbit about the Baron of Raglan and the Earl of Cardigan still makes me laugh. Thanks for all the work you guys do to put out such an awesome podcast & magazine!

  16. Pip October 31, 2016 at 4:49 am #

    I love all of your podcasts! Like catching up with friends every month. I did particularly love your episode with Caitlin French. Thanks for the great work!

  17. Ainhoa October 31, 2016 at 7:50 am #

    Love your podcast! I only started listening to it recently, so I’ll go back and check out other people”s favourites. You guys are actually a great company for my long bike ride to work. My favourite until now has been the one with Amy Hendrix of Mqdelinetosh. I have long been an admirer of her yarns and to know more about her business and inspiration was just wonderful. Thanks for your podcast, and for the giveaway!

  18. Ella October 31, 2016 at 8:46 am #

    My favourite pomcast was episode 19 when you interviewed Fiona Alice, I love her designs (I’m just finishing up my Caswell Bay Mitts!) and it also happened to be the first pomcast I listened to! Can’t wait to listen to this spooky special on my walk home tonight.

  19. Kath Webber October 31, 2016 at 10:15 am #

    Such a fun episode- I loved Sophie’s interview with Rachael Matthews. It’s my birthday on Friday so I’ve asked for her book as a gift! My favourite Pomcase is issue 17- it was the first one I listened to, and I found Emily Foden’s stance on colours and her approach to dying and yarn so evocative as I sped from Bristol to London on a train, enjoying the countryside as I crocheted an iPad case.

  20. Shanna October 31, 2016 at 1:49 pm #

    I love all the episodes (and meeting Lydia at Rhinebeck this year and recognizing her laugh was a special treat!), but if I had to pick a favorite it would be episode 7 with Cirilia Rose. I’m a couple of episodes behind, though, so maybe I’ll have a new favorite soon!

  21. Eimear (inkedandcrafty) October 31, 2016 at 2:14 pm #

    Ooh. This is a toughie! I love all of them and they are all guaranteed to make me smile! I think my favourite is episode 23 where you discuss this year’s EYF and mention me popping up to say hi with some little goodies. But the episode with toast-gate (discussing top 3 toast toppings) is right up there and had me snorting out loud! I realise I should pick something knitting related but all of that goes without saying, love all the interviews.

  22. Mary Beth October 31, 2016 at 5:29 pm #

    You will think this is a dumb answer, but this episode had me laughing out loud in my car on my morning commute today (Halloween) as Eli read the knitting horror stories. It’s not easy to make me laugh early on a Monday morning, but all of you did.

  23. Rebecca G October 31, 2016 at 5:56 pm #

    I loved the episode with Caitlin Ffrench!

  24. Tabea October 31, 2016 at 6:48 pm #

    One of my favorite episodes is number 14 with Felicity Ford. I got so fascinated by her work and Pomcast was the first place I heard about her. Lucky me will take her class at Edin Yarn Fest in March as well! Thanks for introducing me to this lovely Lady!

  25. Lorna P October 31, 2016 at 10:17 pm #

    I love all your podcasts but especially liked episode 24 with Rachel Atkinson because it was the first one I listed to. I have gone back and listened to older ones since then and they all make me smile – and wish I had more time for knitting.

  26. Naomi November 1, 2016 at 1:04 am #

    I really do love all the podcasts but I think my favorite was the one with Clara Parkes (number 11?). I love hearing her speak!

  27. Mary November 1, 2016 at 4:00 am #

    All the podcasts are entertaining and informative, but my favorite is #20 with the interview with Olga Buraya-Kefelian. I love her designs so it was wonderful to learn about her.

  28. Clara November 1, 2016 at 4:56 am #

    Hi there, spectacular episode, the horror tale about the zombie sweater was hilarious :) so relatable.
    My favourite episode so far was 28, it inspired me to meditate on the beauty of repairing while tackling my pile of things to mend.
    <3

  29. Susie Burdett November 1, 2016 at 7:57 am #

    I’ll always be fond of number 26, as it was the first one I listened to, but I have to say, I’m enjoying the spooky music from the latest episode. I do like the interviews, and getting an insight into the minds of inspiring knitters and yarn artists

  30. Emelie November 1, 2016 at 9:15 am #

    If I have to pick a favorite it would probably have to be nr 10, because SOCKS. Even socks for cats! Also the amazing but sadly lost segment Traveling Stitches, although the name wasn’t really coined until the following episode. Great segment!

  31. Melanie November 1, 2016 at 12:34 pm #

    I think my favourite Pomcast was the first or second one I ever listened to. It may have been the one with Clara Parkes. It’s my favourite because 1) I laughed so hard, that I decided to binge listen to all the back issues, and continue listening from there. And 2) I won a copy of Clara’s book! That was the first time I’d ever won anything on the Interwebs.

    This episode is a close second, though because of the cool organ music… And the word ‘baby-squeakage’! LOL

  32. Heather O'Connell November 1, 2016 at 6:27 pm #

    My favourite episode was #19 with Fiona Alice! I was most inspired, and also enjoyed hearing about one of her favourite yarns: River by Fleece Artist. Despite the fact that it’s been discontinued, I scored some from a fellow Raveler’s stash, and am nearly finished making a sweater with it! Keep up the good work. The spooky stories I just heard made me laugh out loud… on the bus! Haha. Thanks :)

  33. Jess (knitosaurusrex) November 1, 2016 at 7:28 pm #

    My favorite is probably #9 with Erika Knight, although this most recent one is a close runner up! Bravo Eli!

  34. Anne Thompson November 1, 2016 at 8:14 pm #

    Hi gang!
    Y’all are my than a podcast for me- I have enjoyed each and everyone of your podcasts during my morning runs! So that kinda puts you down as a running group in my book. I do recall one of your shows talking about your top three favorite comfort foods. I believe you both chimed in on toast and I remembering laughing out loud because I adore toasts. I love hearing all your interviews and current affairs! Keep up the marvelous work 🌸

  35. Jodie Matte November 2, 2016 at 1:44 am #

    I’m a fairly new listener, but I loved this newest pomcast #30. I listen while cleaning the house and I was laughing out loud all over the place :)!

  36. Heather G November 2, 2016 at 2:39 am #

    I really enjoyed this episode. Many LOL moments. Especially the scary knit stories! Thank you for the great episode.

  37. Kasia November 2, 2016 at 9:25 am #

    My favourite podcast was the one no. 16 – with Susan Cropper from Loop. The possibility of as if getting to know her better, to listen to the voice, to the real person behind the inspiring scenes of Loop and to learn about her fibre journey was very encouraging and inspiring to me. xxx

  38. Gemma November 2, 2016 at 10:54 am #

    My favorite episode so far has to be number 27, with the discovery of Amy, maker of Madeline tosh yarn – im now so in love with this yarn! It was the first i heard of it and i swiftly went to Loop to spent a good while checking out all the colours, its so beautiful! And has now kicked off a love of hand dyed yarns . . .

  39. Susan Hobkirk November 2, 2016 at 12:15 pm #

    My favourite is the one with Felix Ford (14?). I wish I had her way with colour. I find it SO hard!!

  40. Sharon Stewart November 2, 2016 at 5:13 pm #

    My favorite episode is #20 Xmas Special, with the Knitmas Carol!

  41. Abigail November 2, 2016 at 5:23 pm #

    So many favorites! Any with Juju. And the one with the Knitsonik interview. And the recent Tom of Holland one.

  42. Janet November 2, 2016 at 5:43 pm #

    So difficult to chose just one episode…like the addition of WWJJD. I look forward to next episode every month. Thank you!

  43. Alison Hellyer November 2, 2016 at 8:45 pm #

    My favourite Pomcast is22 which was powered by the Mini Eggs I gave you at Unravel. Also love the interview with Vera.

  44. Lisa November 2, 2016 at 11:08 pm #

    My favourite is episode 29, I love Ffrench’s website. I’ve followed her adventures for years and I really admire her gathering methods.

  45. REBECCA ANDERSON November 3, 2016 at 8:34 am #

    Erm, really difficult choice to make….I would say that highlights have been the interviews with Ann Maltz( 2?!!), with Felix Ford (14?) and Rachael Matthews (30, I know that’s right!). I love the way each of these women made me think more about how and why we make, and listen. I think the interviews are my favourite bits hence I will select these as my top 3 pomcasts!

  46. Natasha West November 3, 2016 at 1:30 pm #

    I, of course, enjoy them all but my favourite was episode 27 with Amy Hendrix. I loved listening to the story behind MadTosh yarn and her thoughts on colour.

  47. Jocelyn November 3, 2016 at 7:55 pm #

    One of my favorite episodes is Pomcast numero 8! Nothing like a good, festive finish with the “12 Days of Knitmas” tune :)

  48. Cat Treadwell November 3, 2016 at 10:14 pm #

    Stephen West over here too! Looking forward to what comes next in 2017 ❤️

  49. Joanne Wiggins November 3, 2016 at 10:16 pm #

    My goodness, I’ve only just started listening ~ so I’m going to say #1 because it was the beginning of something great for all of us
    Thank you for this exciting opportunity to win

  50. Katie November 3, 2016 at 10:19 pm #

    My favorite episode is probably the interview with Caitlin Ffrench. I loved hearing about her adventures. I also loved Eli’s spooky readings this week and would love to see it as a regular segment!

  51. Vanessa November 3, 2016 at 10:21 pm #

    I’d have to say my favourite episodes were between the Cirilia Rose episode or the one with Caitlin Ffrench they were both super enjoyable and really inspiring ladies! <3

  52. Jeska November 3, 2016 at 10:29 pm #

    I cannot possibly pick just one-in the now infamous words, “you had me at hello”…whenever you guys chirp that at the start, I smile :0) so I would have to join the chorus of people saying ALL of them!

  53. Sarah Wilson November 3, 2016 at 10:35 pm #

    Clara Parkes is always a delight! Truly though, they’re all a treat. Thanks for hosting and keep up the great work!

  54. Sandra974 November 3, 2016 at 10:36 pm #

    My favourite épisode is the Number 11 because I love Clara Parkes. But I really like the number 12 with Joji ❤️

  55. Emily Connell November 3, 2016 at 10:38 pm #

    I really like this most recent episode… but I also like the one with Caitlin Ffrench!

  56. Debbie McP November 3, 2016 at 10:55 pm #

    My favorite pomcast episode is #30. I was at Rhinebeck, behind the Ipad cash register in the Miss Babs booth only a few hundred feet from where you were located, but we were so busy (yay!) I was not able to make it by to see you, so I loved hearing your impressions of Rhinebeck! Thanks for your great magazine and pomcasts and giveaways!

  57. Stephanie Ferguson November 3, 2016 at 11:01 pm #

    I’m new to the podcast! I love it. You gals are so funny. This latest episode is my favorite so far, obviously😁. I can’t wait to listen to the older ones too. I’m very interested in getting one of the needle bags because I also have my needles scattered everywhere! It would be nice to have them in one place.

  58. Amber November 3, 2016 at 11:02 pm #

    The newest pomcast is always my favorite, so this one! They’re always so inspiring. And Halloween gets me every time ♡

  59. The Knitting Man Recommends November 3, 2016 at 11:02 pm #

    sticking my hand up for Episode 16. Knit, listen and learn…

  60. Julie Poole November 3, 2016 at 11:03 pm #

    My favorite is always the newest one! And I am very excited about this book :)

  61. Martha H November 3, 2016 at 11:04 pm #

    My favorite was the episode with the Thea Colman interview… but they are all so good!!

  62. Sabrina Hildebrand November 3, 2016 at 11:06 pm #

    This is the only pomcast I have seen so I would have to say it’s my favorite 😊.

  63. Cindy Leblanc November 3, 2016 at 11:07 pm #

    Pomcast 13 with Stephen West

  64. Jenny deura November 3, 2016 at 11:09 pm #

    I have only just discovered this amazing resource so Episode 30 for me. Going to work my way backwards through the previous Pomcasts

  65. Priyanka Champaneri November 3, 2016 at 11:11 pm #

    I’m a huge Stephen West fan and the podcast featuring him was a treat to listen to.

  66. Elaine Froneberger November 3, 2016 at 11:11 pm #

    I think this episode (#30) is now my favorite! It’s fun and it’s interesting. I’m a sucker for spooky music and this was so satisfying. While I haven’t made it to Rhinebeck, I enjoyed hearing your comments about it. Thank you for that!

  67. Jennifer Brady November 4, 2016 at 12:04 am #

    My favorite is episode 30. I love the music.

  68. Charlaine November 4, 2016 at 12:14 am #

    Episode 22 with Veera Valimaki, she is one of my favorite designers. All your episodes are great, you always ask great questions & have the best guests.

  69. Niamh McCabe November 4, 2016 at 12:15 am #

    Christmas is my favourite time of year, my birthday is 19th of Dec, and our tree doesn’t go up til then. Every year we like to add a new special decoration, and the patterns from Ravelry were ideal – the tiny jumpers!!!!!

  70. Susan Fair November 4, 2016 at 1:42 am #

    My favorite was #26 with Thea Colman. I love her designs and loved being introduced to your magazine because of her. I enjoy listening to the podcasts while I am knitting!

  71. Jayne Schneider November 4, 2016 at 2:40 am #

    My favorite was episode 19, because it was my first. And the autumn 2016 was the first time I ever saw/heard of Pom Pom quarterly and that has become my favorite magazine!

  72. Rose November 4, 2016 at 2:43 am #

    It’s really hard deciding which are my favourite pomcasts because I’m such a fan I listen to them all more than once. I think it’s going to have to be the one where you interview Thea Coleman though and have such fun having drinks with her and she shares the stories about her designs, her fun with cocktails and her family. I love that her daughter’s school peers thought that “baby cocktails” meant that Thea was up to no good!! I am intrigued by this book given that i work in mental health and am convinced that if all my patients took up knitting they would all find a way to feel much better!! Please note that i am teased mercilessly for this crazy notion.

  73. Claire November 4, 2016 at 3:05 am #

    I bought the book Dreaming in Color after listening to Podcast 23 with Kaffe Fasset. Honestly, it’s hard to choose a favorite though! I enjoyed this episode (30) a lot as well, as I love to hear and talk about anything Rhinebeck related!

  74. Aileen Sitero November 4, 2016 at 3:21 am #

    Ep 11 Clara Parkes❤️❤️❤️❤️

  75. Jelleke November 4, 2016 at 3:46 am #

    My favourite episode has to be the one with Amy Hendrix. I am a big fan of Madelinetosh yarn and I’ve always been toying with the idea to start dyeing myself. That being said though, I think every episode is always very enjoyable, no matter who’s the guest. Lydia and Sophie are a lot of fun!

  76. Liz Allardyce November 4, 2016 at 7:33 am #

    I loved the episode with the Edinburgh yarn festival interviews as it brought back happy memories of my favourite knitting event.

  77. Helen November 4, 2016 at 8:08 am #

    Always the latest episode- always awaited with excitement !

  78. Saria November 4, 2016 at 9:53 am #

    Hello Pom! Awesome podcasts keep it up! It is a close tie between the new one and the one with Stephen West, he is incredible, (you are too don’t worry!) ;)

  79. Jennifer Johnston November 4, 2016 at 11:59 am #

    I haven’t listened to very many but now I have a nice selection to go back and start with! Does that count? Thanks for the giveaway!

  80. Filipa Cruz November 4, 2016 at 12:37 pm #

    I loved the episode 9, with the interview with Erika Knight!

  81. Julie November 4, 2016 at 1:26 pm #

    My favourite episode was Thea Colman loved hearing about her stories was so funny

  82. Lesley Bambridge November 4, 2016 at 1:36 pm #

    It is hard to chose, and I haven’t been able to get through them all yet. But 16 with Susan Cropper was really good.. I am sure my favs will change, but I enjoy every one. Thank you

  83. Linda November 4, 2016 at 2:00 pm #

    I just found your podcast so the latest one is my favorite since it’s the only one I’ve listened to so far.

  84. Dominique November 4, 2016 at 2:12 pm #

    I just only found out you had a podcast! I will now listen, and you arr now in my list.

  85. Morgan November 4, 2016 at 2:19 pm #

    My favorite episode is #16!

  86. Rachel Rocket November 4, 2016 at 3:22 pm #

    I’ve loved everyone of these little audio-nuggets, but, between the spooooooky voices and Eli cameo, this latest one may be a new favorite. See also: My very first knitting pattern book was Rachael Matthew’s “Knitorama”, so there was a little bit of “OH, HEY YOU!” nostalgia wrapped into your interview segment. :)

  87. Malin November 4, 2016 at 3:35 pm #

    I just listened to my first pomcast and started with #28 because I have followed Tom of Holland on Instagram for a while. Now I know what to listen to when I go running. You are so energetic, interesting and invigorating : )

  88. Melissa Estes November 4, 2016 at 3:48 pm #

    I had not heard about your podcast yet but I am subscribing NOW!

  89. Bonnie Kate Wolf November 4, 2016 at 3:54 pm #

    Stephen West episode! He’s just an absolute treasure and I love to learn about him. 😍

  90. Heatherlee November 4, 2016 at 4:39 pm #

    I’ve only started listening recently! Maybe the Clara Parks one. Although, I. Need to listen to the Tin Can Knits one because I love their patterns. You have lovely voices and are so funny!

  91. Janieb November 4, 2016 at 4:46 pm #

    Ooooo a favourite episode. Well that would always be the latest one.

  92. Ceridwen Davies November 4, 2016 at 4:47 pm #

    Have enjoyed them all, but particularly liked the interview with Veera Välimäki, and the one with Caitlin ffrench and the one with …..

  93. Flongstocking November 4, 2016 at 5:05 pm #

    This latest episode was lovely! The episode with Veera Välimäki is my all time favourite I think. Thanks so much for 30 episodes, You are amazing :)

  94. Birdwatcher November 4, 2016 at 5:24 pm #

    I’m a new listener. But after this one….i hardly cab wait to hear the coming episode😉

    I haven’t had a chance yet to listen to all that many episodes but my favorites
    so far is Episode 28 with Tom of Holland. I have so much respect
    for what he does with his darning and in his personal
    projects. You can tell everything he does is thoughtful, tidy, respectful of the past and he seems always in the present / never in a hurry. We could all learn a lot of lessons from him in so many ways!

    Oh my goodness, how to choose? I loved Pomcast 26 with Thea Colman (what a hoot!), and I really enjoyed Juju, but I missed Lydia…also loved Pomcast 27 with Amy Hendrix (such a great chat about colour)…Rachael Matthews interview was so interesting in episode 30…but my fav so far has to be Pomcast 16 with Susan Cropper. I love Loop, London’s aesthetic and Sophie and Lydia were just so cute chatting with Susan. Love all the British fun on your podcast, listening from the West Coast of Canada :)

    I truly love all your episodes. But the recent one was such a fun. Eli should read more often in the podcast.

    Love from Hamburg, Germany

    No way to choose a favorite. Each podcast is delightful and I’m always looking forward to the next one! :)

    Each new podcast is my favorite!

  100. Jo November 4, 2016 at 10:55 pm #

    Oh how do I choose a favourite!!! If I really have to I guess episode 27 I think, where Amy Hendrix spoke about colour and her fibre dyeing journey. Inspirational and encouraging!
    Thanks so much for such an enjoyable podcast, I always have a smile on my face when listening! xx

    My favorite podcast is always the one I’ve just heard. So I loved episode#28 because I love Tom of Holland and am all fascinated with darning. I’ve managed to gather my own bag of darning supplies. I even mend the store bought wool socks because, well, why not?

    But now I just finished episode #30 and I love that too because when we visited London in 2014, I went to Prick Your Finger and enjoyed it so much and have been wondering and wondering what Rachael has been doing. It was such a clever shop.

    so basically, ALL the podcasts

  102. Marie November 5, 2016 at 2:31 am #

    Definitely #14 with knitsonic!

  103. Lea November 5, 2016 at 1:01 pm #

    Another great podcast:-)

    I loved the one with Stephen West, I think it was #13.

    Such a pleasure to listen to you! Of course any Pom Pom podcast is great but number 23 with Kaffe Fassett was really nice and interesting and I love his sense of color and unusual vision.

  106. Lauren November 5, 2016 at 1:58 pm #

    I love them all! But definitely the episode where the top 3 was favorite toast toppings. Very excited for the opportunity to win.

  107. Anna November 5, 2016 at 2:39 pm #

    I really loved the one with the interview of Caitlin Ffrench!

  108. Geraldine November 5, 2016 at 3:08 pm #

    I like all the Pomcasts. If Imwould have to choose I would say the one with the maker of Madelinetosh yarn

  109. Giorgia November 5, 2016 at 3:46 pm #

    The one with Caitlin Ffrench!

  110. Sue H. November 5, 2016 at 3:54 pm #

    So many great Pomcasts to choose from! I especially loved episode 12 when we got to learn more about Joji Locatelli, and her collaboration with Veera Valmiki. Also, books as a top three topic was so good. Cheers!

    This current episode has to be my favorite. I laughed out loud on a packed Muni bus at all three horror story segments. mr. Eli was the perfect narrator sounding like a fussy bachelor truly horrified at these tales of knitting woe. Please bring him back in another seqment!

  112. Madeleine November 5, 2016 at 6:48 pm #

    This is the first Pomcast I’ve listened to, so that makes it my favorite so far! Saw the lovely Lydia at Rhinebeck and purchased both the Autumn and Winter issues. So I thought I would give the Pomcat a listen. Your Rhinebeck sweater was beautiful in person and you did tell me it was just freshly finished!

  113. Lori November 5, 2016 at 9:32 pm #

    How can I pick just one!?! I love them all, and enjoy listening to older ones that I missed. Okay, if I must, I’ll go with the Thea Colman one. She is such a bright spot in the knitting world. Oh, I really love the Stephen West one, too. And then there’s the one with… The list goes on and on!

  114. Vedrana November 5, 2016 at 10:57 pm #

    I loved the pomcast 30.

  115. Victoria November 6, 2016 at 4:45 pm #

    I’ve only just found the Pom Pom podcast so don’t have many to choose from but probably Ep 29 just because I was making a TOFT Edwards Imaginarium Monster while listening and the book was reviewed – nice coincidence.

  116. K Parkin November 6, 2016 at 4:53 pm #

    Hi Because Podcast no 29 solved the problem of the long sleeves in my latest sweater, which I didn’t want to reknit, it has to be my favourite . The said sweater had the cuffs cut off as suggested (after putting in a lifeline) and re cast off . It is now warm, cosy and has perfect length sleeves! Thank you.

    My fav episode was #19, because Fiona Alice is wonderful, and I am a children’s book enthusiast so the top three was just a delight! I’m hoping to cast on my own Take Heart very soon.

    I think this episode (#30) made me giggle the most, though! Eli’s voice acting is most excellent.

  118. Roos November 6, 2016 at 8:20 pm #

    My favourite was number 16, loved the intervieuw with Susan Cropper, but I enjoy every Pomcast!

  119. Maaikeg November 7, 2016 at 2:20 pm #

    Great podcast! Would love to enter the give away.
    The podcast with Tom of Holland (28 I think) was my favorite so far.
    Kind regards!!

  120. Wanda November 8, 2016 at 10:34 am #

    Love the Ma’am jacket! Your podcast is great!

  121. felinity November 9, 2016 at 8:16 am #

    I have just caught up with this month’s pomcast and Eli’s rendition of the spooky knitting stories actually made me laugh out loud on the train. Thank you for something so fun and funny on a day like today!

    This pomcast is a strong contender for my favourite one, thanks largely to that, but I think I’ll have to go for ep 26 which is the first one I listened to (before mainlining all of your backlog).
